Michelangelo used a chisel to make the iconic ‘David’ and Da Vinci made use of a paintbrush to create the ‘Mona Lisa’, but one British artist has a very different approach to her art.

Keira Rathbone, who was born in 1983, uses a typewriter to create her work, which has included depictions of leading politicians like former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Typewriter art is an old skill which can apparently be traced back to the 1800s and was used by artists like the American Paul Smith.

The technique sees the artist produce an image with letters and symbols by typing on a typewriter.

It can take days to finish the pictures and requires serious precision as any mistake is difficult to remove or cover.

Rathbone started out as a typewriter artist in 2003 and developed her skills and passion over the subsequent years.
