ABOUT LEVI PONCE
Levi Ponce was born in Los Angeles in 1987. He grew up painting alongside his prolific muralist/sign painter father, Hector Ponce, and went on to study graphic design and animation at CSUN. His murals can be seen up and down Mural Mile in Pacoima, Reseda, NoHo, Venice, and many other places throughout Los Angeles. Levi’s philosophy is that art is meant to be shared. He welcomes help from people who live in the neighborhoods he paints in and sees his murals as something that belongs to the entire community. In 2014, MSN’s Latinzine named Levi one of the “Top 10 Latinos To Watch” in the United States. For more information on Levi Ponce: www.leviponce.com
