Leonard Janklow

Leonard Janklow (1919–2006) was born in Brooklyn, NY into a large family. He knew early in life that he had an artistic gift, which led to a scholarship to the Art Students League in NY. After finishing his training his ambition was to be a full time artist, but the Depression forced him to take an apprenticeship in the painting of enormous ladies on huge outdoor signs. From there he took a job in an art studio, which began his career in commercial art. His career was interrupted by WWII, where he painted outdoor murals and drew pinups and cartoons for Army publications. But after four years in the Army, he returned to commercial art and eventually became President of a very successful advertising agency in New York City.

In 1972 after a quarter of a century of involvement in advertising and art he decided at age 53 to return to his pursuit of fine art. He sold his business and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he began to make a name for himself in the field of Kinetic Fine Art. Since that time he has gained international attention for his outstanding creations of art that provide the illusion of movement. His creative use of acrylic, vibrant colors and remarkable design have led to many one may shows across the US. Although well known for his unique acrylic constructions, Janklow produced only a handful of limited editions, both two and three dimensional, and the Zimmerman Editions atelier produced and published all of them.
