The Incredible Typewriter Art Of Severe Cerebral Palsy Sufferer Paul Smith...
In his lifetime he couldn't dress or feed himself.
It took him sixteen years to learn to speak to be understood. It took him more than thirty years to learn how to walk.
Do we have problems. I don't think so.
This man had a passion for art that he managed to express, through the keys of an old manual typewriter.
Paul had to use his left hand to steady his right one to push a key.
He couldn't press two keys at the same time so kept the shift key locked and made his art using the symbols ! @ # $ % & * ( ) at the top of the numbers keys.
Over seventy years this patient and talented man created hundreds of pictures as over time his mastery of the typewriter grew.
He passed away in 2007 and left behind his art as an inspiration to all...
