The Chromatic Typewriter Types in Color

December 4, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. I don’t know how practical painting an image with a color typewriter is, but if it is, Keira Rathbone can do it.

Anatomical Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

November 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Beautiful yet somewhat chilling watercolor paintings by artist Danny Quirk who lives and works out of Springfield, Massachusetts. Via his website:

My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.

I think these are really lovely. And if you like them you’ll most likely appreciate these anatomical paintings by Michael Reedy (nsfw), make sure to zoom in for detail. (via interrupted thoughts)

Self-taught artist Lou Ros began his career by tagging walls and buildings with friends at the age of 17. Now 26, he’s exhibiting his paintings worldwide with no less than seven upcoming group and solo exhibitions in Miami, New York, Paris and elsewhere. Some of the pieces above are from his Faces series, many of which were shown at an exhibition earlier this spring at Tache Gallery. (via art fixx)
