Typewritten Portraits by Álvaro Franca of Famous Literary Authors

AlexArt





For his Typewritten Portraits series, Rio de Janeiro-based artist Álvaro Franca used a typewriter to create portraits of five of his favorite authors, including Jack Kerouac, J.D. Salinger, and Charles Bukowski.

“Typewritten Portraits is a project of experimental art.
During my exchange in the Cambridge School of Art, developed a technique for imaging grayscale with the typewriter and, from there, I made portraits of five of my favorite authors of literature who worked on typewriters.
The series is still ongoing and there are plans for five more pictures to complete.” – Álvaro Franca
