New York Artist Jonathan Levy’s Work Reflects a Natural Process

Arts & Culture: Jonathan Levy was raised and educated in New York, where he received a degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn. Not long after, he moved to Maui, Hawaii in search of inspiration, and discovered the source of what was to become his unique and truly inspired form of painting.

Pure observation of the world around him opened his eyes to an entirely new perspective. As a result, his work became significantly marked by the patterns and movements that exist in nature, from the mathematical and repetitive design of a flower, to the rhythm and flow of the ocean. Furthermore, as a trained stone carver, Levy’s painting style is deeply influenced by the marbled patterns found within stone. As Levy states, “The elements found in nature are undeniably intriguing. We are all innately, deeply attracted to these foundations.”

Once Levy returned to New York, he was determined to share what he had learned. Through his work, he is attempting to reignite an appreciation for all that forms through a natural process. In today’s fast-moving, high-tech world, the splendor of nature, oftentimes, is overshadowed and taken for granted. Levy hopes to refocus the lens of our culture’s attention, to spotlight that which grows, forms and prospers without the intervention of man. His work is now available online.
