Jonathan Levine Projects is committed to new and cutting edge art. Our roots go back to 1995 when LeVine’s life-long participation in punk and underground music grew into a curatorial experiment with the visual culture that surrounded him.  In 2005, he opened Jonathan LeVine Gallery in the Chelsea district of New York City and has had great success nurturing the careers of many celebrated artists.

The gallery’s search for the next great artist began in spring 2017 with the 1st Annual Delusional Art Competition. An overwhelming number of submissions came in from artists based around the world, which made the selection process an extremely difficult task. The 42 artists selected for Delusional work in a variety of media, reflecting current trends in contemporary art and the eclectic stylistic mix the gallery is known for exhibiting. By providing an exhibition opportunity for these outstanding artists, the gallery hopes to bring new talent to the forefront and open doors for their future endeavors.
