The pen is mightier than the sword as they say but if these amazing sculptures from Éric Nado are anything to go by, the typewriter might just be mightier than the gun. These spectacular Éric Nado Typewriter Guns are a stunningly intricate and impeccably crafted series of artwork that will leave you impressed with the sheer attention to detail that has gone into their construction and lovers of industrial design will be in their element.
The Éric Nado Typewriter Guns are being sold via C.O.A Gallery and the artist himself has spent years exploring urban relics, and getting his hands on any industrial pieces that he could in order to craft phenomenal modern sculptures such as these Typewriter Guns. The first rate artwork from Nado pays tribute to our industrial past and is positively overflowing with a sense of nostalgia for the lost medium of typewriting.
Just Our Type
We love clever pieces of artwork like these Typewriter Guns by Éric Nado here at Coolector HQ and if you’re equally as enamoured with those artists who dare to do things a little differently, you’ll be loving his work too. These spectacular pieces of design are crafted from old typewriters that he has discovered on his travels and each one has been painstakingly disassembled and put together again in the form of different pieces of weaponry such AK47 and Tommy Guns.
Nado has used an array of different typewriters in order to deliver these cracking pieces of artwork such as a Corona Red, Orange Underwood and a Yellow Tippa typewriter and each one has its own little intricacies and design features which add their own sense of unique design flair to the finished product. It’s hard not to be impressed with the way in which Nado has woven the different elements of a typewriter’s design into the making of his arsenal of weaponry and the Eric Nado Typewriter Guns are such a clever piece of artwork that we’re not surprised to see the gallery through which they’re being sold has already sold out of most.
The Typewriter Guns by Éric Nado are exactly the sort of thing we gravitate towards here at The Coolector and we can definitely see one of these taking pride of place in our workspace (if we had much deeper pockets than we currently possess). Ingeniously crafted and exceptionally striking, the cleverness of the design and vibrant use of colour in the typewriters chosen really does make these pieces stand out from the crowd.
A Most Talented Man
Boasting no shortage of talent, Nado hasn’t appeared on our radar previously here at Coolector HQ but these sensational Typewriter Guns have thrust him firmly upon it and we really can’t wait to see what else that he has got in store in his creative fingertips in the rest of 2017.
If you love industrial style artwork and looking for that perfect focal point piece of artwork that will promote discussion, these Typewriter Guns from Éric Nado are going to fit the bill wonderfully well. Exceptionally well crafted with a real tangible sense of quality, you’ll need to move quickly if you want to snap up one of the last few that the C.O.A Gallery has remaining.
