Jonathan initially begun as a skater but after a fall when he was 18 he found solace in graffiti. He describes graffiti as the closest thing to skating for him, where each skater has a personal style they show off. After living for a period of time in both New York City and London, Jonathan insists Israel is the most competitive of all places with people here incredibly talented and hardworking. If you can make it in Israel you can make it anywhere.The Culture Trip got a few minutes of Jonathan’s time to ask him some burning questions.
