Paul Smith was born in Philadelphia in September 21, 1921. From an early age, he suffered from severe spastic cerebral palsy. Doctors suspected he wouldn’t live long. His condition made it impossible for him to attend school. Due to the relative loss of motor control, he couldn’t even eat, clothe, or bathe himself. Expressing himself to others was a hard job. But then he discovered an amazing invention called the typewriter. It made a drastic change in his life.
It took him 16 years to learn to speak and 32 years to learn to walk; but by the age of 15, Paul was creating ingenious pictures using just a typewriter! It sounds bizarre and impossible, but wait till you see it for yourself. He is now known to the world as the “Typewriter Artist”. Paul passed away in June 25, 2007 at the age of 85, but he has left behind many of his beautiful, distinct, and detailed artworks for us.
