James Cook | Summer 2022 Show
15.07.22 – 07.08.22 | 11:00 – 16:00
Whilst James is a UK-based artist, he draws in the largest crowds from his global audience. Up until May 2022, James had mostly typed London-based and Essex countryside subjects as a result of residing and working in both areas of the United Kingdom. This new series of ‘World Landmarks’ for his summer 2022 exhibition broadens the horizon and possibilities of the typewriter medium.
Originals and prints of his work will be on display in two venues. The Moot Hall; a beautiful 15th century building located in the historic town of Maldon, Essex will host an expansive collection of James’ work including his acclaimed typewriter artwork of portrait Tom Hanks, signed by the actor himself, in addition to the artist’s largest work to date, in which he is setting out to set a Guinness World Record as having created the Largest Typewriter Drawing ever made.
In addition, original drawings will be out on display at the Wonky Wheel Gallery, located in Finchingfield, Essex. Prints of James’ latest work will be available for purchase and bookable workshops to learn to create typewriter art, hosted by the artist, are now on sale at the link below:
Venue Details for Both Locations:
The Moot Hall, 41 High St, Maldon, CM9 5PF
Wonky Wheel Gallery, The Green, Finchingfield, Braintree CM7 4JS
From a distance, it’s impossible to tell that James’ art has even been hand-typed on a vintage typewriter. It is only when you move in closely that the type-written letters, numbers and punctuation marks begin to reveal themselves on the page.
In April 2022, James exhibited a never-before-seen London-based artwork exclusively for this exhibition which he describes as ‘some of my very best work to date.’

Officially, James creates the largest typewriter art on record as many of his panoramic-scale drawings expand far beyond the size of his typewriters. Most of his art contains more than 100,000 individually-stamped typewritten marks and he can spend at least a month working on a single drawing.
Live demonstrations and bookable workshops were available to members of the general public. More details of this event can be found on the Trinity Buoy Wharf website.
