Chromatic Typewriter Paints Oils

Design Inspiration: A 1937 Typewriter That Paints With Colorful Oils

5 Years Ago By Diana Adams

Wow, using this typewriter would be like a dream come true. It’s so inspiring and fantastic that I can barely say enough about it. This started out to be a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter. Artist Tyree Callahan got his hands on it and recreated the whole thing into something brand new. Now instead of typing letters, it paints with colorful oils.

He did this by taking the ink pads and letter keys off. He replaced them with colored paint pads and markers. He calls his new creation the Chromatic Typewriter. Of course, painting with this new machine wouldn’t make precise strokes, but as you see in the pictures, it would create a dreamy world of fantasy and colors.

I write about different artists and their wonderful creativity every day, but this typewriter is really special. I wish so much I could try it out and paint with it. Right now it is in the 2012 West Prize art competition. The winner is chosen based on the number of votes he or she gets. These images are so beautiful, and I hope Tyree takes first place for his creativity and ingenious idea!
