Levi Ponce was born in Pacoima, California where the visual artist picked up a paintbrush as a child, helping his Salvadorian father paint walls. It was his father’s literal colorful and vibrant occupation that nurtured Ponce’s own art and later led to a Bachelor’s Degree in Art with a concentration in animation and, now, a full-fledged career that boasts an entire mile of mural work along Van Nuys Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Ponce is passionate about putting Pacoima on the map through this work and his efforts aren’t going unnoticed; his canvas work has been exhibited at the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum as well as private galleries.

Already a media darling, the muralist has been featured on The Daily News, Fox Good Day LA, Univision, EFE, La Opinion and various other media.

Levi Ponce’s most significant & highly acclaimed self-funded labor of love has been the artist’s local mural work, totaling 12 along Van Nuys Blvd in the East San Fernando Valley, which he beganindependently and later evolved into community projects.

This aspect of his work, the evolution from personal passion to community collaboration, is perhaps Ponce’s proudest achievement. Throughoutthe mural process he has been joined by other artists as well as community members without artistic experience who found themselves drawn to the art and picked up a brush to add their own color and lines. To Ponce, the community coming together in the name of art and culture is the biggest reward he can get for his purposeful labor.
