Mixed media original painting on aluminium by Paul Kenton. 48" x 48".

I’ve always loved the 70s and 80s typewriters with its hammer keys, and the satisfying swish and click when they hit the ink tape and transfer onto the paper.

Mixed media original painting on aluminium by Paul Kenton. 48" x 48".   My paint marks in this piece are inspired by the block shapes and colours of the test card from 1970s and early 1980s television.
