PETER “PAID” LEVINE
Peter “Paid” Levine is a Brooklyn, New York born-and-raised artist, with deep roots in hand-lettering, sign painting, 1980’s subway graffiti and DJing.
While attending New York City’s prestigious High School of Art & Design at the height of the subway graffiti era, Paid was immersed in 80’s underground culture, and the early stages of cultivating his craft began. Equally as passionate about music and record collecting as he is about art, Paid dove head first into the skill of DJing. Eventually perfecting his craft well enough to spin at some of New York City’s hottest nightclubs including Limelight, Red Zone, as well as a multiyear residency at the legendary after-hours, Japan.
After several years, Paid took a brief hiatus from DJing to concentrate on a sign painting apprenticeship that would turn into a career. With over forty years of experience in the art world, from writing graffiti , album cover design, logo creation, owning and operating a commercial sign shop in Brooklyn, New York, In 2018 Peter Paid transitioned his own unique style into a focused studio practice. Merging the past, present, and future, in vivid color and familiar old school forms, Peter is intent on blurring the lines between commercial sign painting and fine art. With a can, a brush, and a 40 year deep Hip Hop resume, he uses classic sign painting to tell the tales of street culture.
