SEASON 1 - INVENTOR & KINETIC ARTIST

BRAD LITWIN

Primarily self-taught, Brad Litwin has carved out an illustrious career spanning decades. In his numerous fields of graphic design, sculpting, woodworking, multimedia production, and engineering, Brad proves that skills and interests, though seemingly disjointed at first, have a strange way of intersecting in the most fun and gratifying way possible.

A man of many talents and even many more interests, Brad shows that no matter how disparate your skills may be, sometimes life finds a way to bring them together.

Growing up in an artistic and musical family, Brad has been an artist all his life, and his fascination for mechanics has been just as prevalent. He recalls his mother often told him that, as a baby, he would hang off the sides of his carriage just to watch the wheels spin as he was pushed around. Looking back, he says that it may have been a foreshadowing of sorts for the life he would eventually live and lead. Even at an early age, his family was always supportive of his artistic endeavors. His parents were classically-trained musicians, and his two brothers, though not professional artists, shared the same passion to create that he had. It was quite easy to see: the Litwin family really valued art and their ability to express themselves.
Being exposed to such creativity and resourcefulness very early on may have led Brad to become independent himself, as many of his skills were learned through self-teaching and through years of trial and error. Much of the techniques he employs in his craft—graphic design, sculpting, and engineering—were things he either learned himself or picked up from watching others excel at what they do. Apart from his family, he cites renowned artist and inventor Rowland Emett as one of his early inspirations. Emett was known for his many cartoons and caricatures, and for his fantastical kinetic sculptures.

Brad’s first encounter with Emett’s work was during his visit to the Smithsonian sometime during the late 60s. Upon entering the lobby, the young and impressionable Brad took one glance at the “Honeywell-Emett Forget-Me-Not Computer” on display and simply marveled at it, saying, “It was a riot. I could’ve looked at that thing for hours and hours.” This chance encounter instilled in Brad a lifelong fascination with kinetic sculptures, and though it would take him years to rediscover it, bits and pieces of it would show up in the various works he did in the many fields he found himself in. His very first kinetic sculpture, “Extra-Universal Movement” back in 1979 was heavily inspired by the works of Rowland Emett.

“We went to visit Washington, D.C., at the Smithsonian Museum, and at the lobby, was a real-life Rowland Emett Computer. It was a riot. I could’ve looked at that thing for hours and hours.” [Talking about his inspiration for his many works and sculptures]

Never idle, he spends full time working on his craft in a well-equipped studio, in the urban wilds of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He had recently come back from Maine’s Acadia National Park, and it’s exciting to think what new and innovative sculptures he’s bound to make next. Check out his work right here on Ronin.
