Pixel Painter: 97 Year Old Legally Blind Man Creates Art Using Microsoft Paint

July 24, 2013 No Comments

Beautiful paintings like the one above were created using Microsoft Paint. If that isn’t hard enough to believe, the pixel painter is a 97 year old, legally blind man named Hal Lasko.

Decades after Lasko retired, his urge to create art was still with him. His grandson, Ryan Lasko, showed the designer Microsoft Paint in the late 1990s. “Grandpa was hooked. His work blossomed and he painted on the computer all the time. No one knew how important this program would become to Grandpa until he lost some of his vision in 2005,” Ryan says on the Web site Hallasko.com. Lasko would also eventually become legally deaf.
