Artist of the moment…….Dwinell Grant

 

Dwinell Grant was born in Springfield, Ohio in the year 1912. Dwinell Grant was renown for his style of abstraction that used basic geometric shapes.

Grant attended the Dayton Art Institute located in Dayton, Ohio. Grant then moved to New York City and attended the National Academy of Design.

Dwinell Grant taught at the collegiate level at Wittenberg College also located in Ohio.

Here we view one of the many short animated films made by Grant. Remember he didn’t have Microsoft Windows Paint! On many occasions one film might require more than 3,o00 separate drawings. These works are still underappreciated to this day!

The artist enjoyed trying new mediums and produced many short animated films of less than ten minutes in length. Of his time spent in the commercial arena of art the majority of his time was spent medical illustrations.

Much of the artist’s early work was purchased by the Guggenheim Foundation.

Grant was a very successful commercial artist illustrating medical books and even producing training videos for the United States Navy.

Dwinell Grant passed away in 1991.
