Joel Rea was on of the great painters in our Juxtapoz Hyperreal book, and we got attracted to his surreal works through Jonathan LeVine. So it makes sense then that Rea's newest solo show, Beasts of Arcadia, will open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on September 12 and run through October 10, and look to be a stellar, painterly show of dreamlike sequences and apocalyptic endings.

Three-Planet Lifestyle, a solo exhibition of new works by Stephan Doitschinoff, will open September 10 and be up until October 10, 2015 at Jonathan LeVine Gallery at 529 West 20th Street and 557C West 23rd Street, New York City. At first glance, Doitschinoff’s work appears to be a visual narrative infused with religious and esoteric references but closer examination reveals a process of appropriation and re-signification. He uses recognizable religious icons such as the altar, the procession and anthropomorphic characters but removes all mystic and ideological content, appropriating the imagery and adding contemporary symbols created from personal reflection and observation. In Three-Planet Lifestyle, sinking boats full of books, moons studded with flags and collapsing skyscrapers allude to the rupture of a strict system and the consequences of unintentional actions.

infra:REAL is a group exhibition, curated by collector and historian Patrick Wilshire, presenting the width and breadth of imaginative realism under a single banner. The exhibition features the work of thirty-seven artists, all of whom share a fascination with the narrative of “What if?” and have a strong connection to the mythic taproot that burrows deep into our collective subconscious. Their technical approaches vary, from academic to avant-garde, turning your vision “infra-real” and giving a glimpse above, below, and beyond the reality that both comforts and restricts us all.

If you haven't seen the work of EVOL in person, it is some of the coolest work being made in the world right now. From the streets, installation, site-specifuc projects, to fine art in galleries, the Berlin-based artist is one of a kind. For his newest show, Unreal Estate, opening at NYC's Jonathan LeVine Gallery on June 25, the artist continues to explore his signature stencil on used cardboard work.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Life Wants to Live, a series of new works by Massachusetts-born, London-based artist Phil Hale in what will be his debut solo exhibition at the gallery. The first decade of the millennium and its attendant information surge comprehensively shattered any historic model of human activity. In Life Wants to Live, Hale’s first solo exhibition in four years, the artist wanders through the debris field.
