Typewriting A Tribute To Dmitri Prigov

Modern Systems
Characters on paper and modern systems.

I will like to salute this 2017 with an minimalist illustration from Sir Joe Works’ archives: a typewritten portrait of artist, poet, and performer Dmitri Aleksandrovich Prigov (Russian: Дми́трий Алекса́ндрович При́гов). As a conceptual artist and dissident during the Soviet Union Era, he became one of he main figures of Moscow Conceptualism.

The image above triggered a series of black and white artworks created with typewriters and old-style xeroxed collages. You will have a glimpse of this stuff here on sirjoeworks.com in the upcoming year 2018!
