Paul Smith, now an elderly man, was born with spastic cerebral palsy. That health issue prohibits him from doing the most basic of daily activities – such as getting dressed or eating. And it took him more than 30 years to learn how to walk. But through serious determination, he became an amazing type-writer artist, using only letters and symbols.
At age 15, Paul started working with the typewriter to create art, and slowly refined his technique until he was able to create real masterpieces. He would use his left hand to steady the right, so because he couldn’t type with both hands the artist would lock the “Shift” key and create most of his works with the characters “@ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _”. He spent 2-3 hours a day typing away on his typewriter while listening to Classical music, and each of his artworks would take him anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months. Over 70 years of artistic activity, Paul Lung created hundreds of beautiful typewriter art pieces, most of which he simply gave away.
