Type A Painting With The Chromatic Typewriter
Tyree Callahan, a Washington-based artist, has turned a vintage typewriter into a unique method of painting.
Washington-based painter, Tyree Callahan conceived of an enticing new way to make art. Built for the 2012 West Prize competition, he created a functional painting typewriter, dubbed the Chromatic Typewriter, by replacing the letter keys on a vintage 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter with color pads and hue labels. Though, it may not yield the same results as brushstrokes, the concept of painting a picture using words (each key produces a rectangular pixel of color) is what makes this project compelling.
