MARTIN LEVITT, (no middle name, the family was too poor) was born on Groundhog's Day in 1926 during a snowstorm in New York. (His father trudged several miles to get to the hospital and came down with Rheumatic Fever several days later; his heart was affected and he died relatively young.). His father, uncles and grandmother were all working artists and designers. They were émigrés from Russia around 1906. Martin Levitt served in the U.S. army in World War II and in the Israeli army in 1948. He went to the Art Students League in New York and worked as an assistant to a famous sculptor. He has since worked as a designer, artist and teacher. His philosophy has been to work and live without harming or exploiting other people or despoiling the planet; whilst drawing, painting and teaching art. He made a series of art filled books including "Poems from the Japanese" (In the MOMA collection) and "Oriental Poetry Illustrated" and "No Single thing Abides" Illustrated. Lives in Vermont, USA.
