Kira transforms letters into beautiful paintings with a typewriter

It instinctively translates what you see into a set of letters, numbers and symbols chosen for their shape and compositional values, resulting in the formation of beautiful images that encourage the viewer to continue looking from different distances, and read more of its letters each time.

Kira explains that she develops and displays images based on attractive themes and often incorporates live audio/visual performances by writing in front of an audience, with video and sound effects in collaboration with other artists.

In front of a large picture of Burj Khalifa, “Kira” says that it was completed in 8 hours. Because of the minute details, while she explained that some drawings take no more than 10 minutes.

And she adds, “I use this art; Because it reflects the world and the people around me, and it enables me to capture moments through this accessible artistic medium, ”noting that typewriter art does not exaggerate the complexity, but allows for a moment to be captured and celebrated in a real shot that reflects beauty and influences.
