Typewriter Guns by Éric Nado
Éric Nado is a Canadian artist having a degree of Visual Arts and Philosophy. Having several solo echibitions, currently represents Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art in California and at the C.O.A. Gallery in Montreal. His latest project was to reconstruct typewriters to look like guns.
“Olivetti, Underwood and other vintage brands of typewriting machines are transformed into evocative Typewriter Guns by reassembling every piece of the original machines. The series triggers the idea that words are stronger than arms and shape history.” he explains. Nado explores the urban remains, collects industrial objects, and transforms them into contemporary sculptures. Nostalgia is the main ingredient in any project he undertakes. And the result is impressive. Enjoy.
