They say art never dies – or at least that’s what we think they say. Washington-based artist Tyree Callahan has taken what some would call a prehistoric device and transformed it into an amazing art piece. The resourceful artist converted an old 1927 Underwood Standard typewriter into a practical painting device he’s dubbed: the Chromatic Typewriter.
“I’m super excited about it. The reaction to the piece has been pretty special. It seems to be making a lot of people happy and it has started some great discussions on the translation of art into words and words into art. And folks with synesthesia seem to like it the most,” says Callahan.
The conceptual art piece replaced the letter and keys with color pads and hued labels, allowing the “typer” to create stunning pieces of art. However, Callahan states that it’s only a “conceptual piece” and doesn’t “actually paint”.
