Type in Color!

A picture speaks 1,000 words. I guess that’s what Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan was thinking when he took a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter and replaced the letters and keys with color pads and labels to create a painting of sorts. The beautiful device called the Chromatic Typewriter was part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. Would love to try it!

    • So far it’s a one-off created for an art competition, but who knows? However, those 1937 Underwoods are heavier than a 2012 Toyota Prius! Thanks for your comment!
