Keira Rathbone


Keira Rathbone is a British artist, who uses typewriters to make portraits from numbers, letters and other symbols. She has 30 old typewriters, which she uses to create her artworks. Keira Rathbone has her studio in London. She looks at different people in the streets, cafes and shops and then makes their portraits using her individual techniques. She uses hitting keys to make the shades, using lighter or darker colours.

This is something extraordinary in the world of art, as it is very inspiring and unusual how somebody can make something that beautiful with just a simple typewriter. She has interested me so much because it's something I can't do myself and that seems very difficult for me, but at the same time very interesting.
