Jonathan LeVine (born 1968) is an American art dealer. In 2005 he opened the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, which has two spaces in the Chelsea area of Manhattan.[1] He sells lowbrow and street art.

As a child, LeVine lived in Trenton, New Jersey. He graduated in sculpture. In 2001 he opened a small gallery in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and two years later moved it to Philadelphia. In 2005 he moved again, to the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, in New York City.[2]

In 2007, work by eight Brazilian street and graffiti artists was shown as "Ruas De São Paulo".[3]

In June 2007, for Shepard Fairey’s solo exhibition E Pluribus Venom, LeVine rented a temporary space in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn.[4]

In March 2010, LeVine's Five Year Anniversary Group Exhibition was featured in a full-page article in the Arts & Leisure section of The New York Times.[2] In addition to the article, the exhibition was showcased in a three-part interactive feature on The New York Times website.[5]

In early 2014, Jonathan LeVine Gallery expanded and now has a second location at 557C West 23rd Street.[6]
