Previous exhibiting artists and other notable links

The Kinetic Art genre has an eclectic mix of artists spread throughout the world. The MAD Museum (Mechanical Art and Design) is the first we know of that is dedicated to a permanent display of the work of these artists.

There are thousands of interesting items out there in workshops and garages throughout the world, and the links below will take interested parties to each artist’s website. We have tried to arrange them by order of country (strictly alphabetical priority!)

Lots of works are much better seen live than in images or on video where it is not easy to get the full understanding or credit of the effect or ingenuity of the piece of Kinetic Art.

If you are looking for a Kinetic Art sculpture for perhaps a hotel foyer, public space or even your home then please get in touch with these artists directly.
