Excellent little BBC video:
The artist in that video is Keira Rathbone. What skill.
In our Moscow office one day in the 1990s, a press release arrived by fax promoting a typewriter artist from India. What his story was we never discovered, but I believe the artist was Uday Mahadeo Talwalkar:
Now, I'm sorry to say that when his press release arrived we paid no attention and in fact somebody pinned it up in the kitchen alongside some absurd-but-true wire stories from the AP. These included TAJIKISTAN ESTABLISHES SPACE PROGRAM and, my favourite, RUSSIAN SOLDIERS KILL OFFICER, FLEE ON TRACTOR.
