73-Year-Old Japanese Man Creates Impressive Paintings Using Only Excel
Meet Tatsuo Horiuchi, a 73-year-old Japanese, who creates highly detailed paintings with the most unexpected software – MS Excel. The newly discovered artist has been interested in graphic arts for a long time, but only since his retirement 13 years ago he finally got the time he needed for the new hobby.
Horiuchi has never used Excel at work and got interested in this particular software only for two reasons – it was more affordable than Photoshop (he had Excel preinstalled on his PC) and easier to use than MS Paint. Horiuchi’s artworks have already been presented in many exhibitions and the artist even won Excel Autoshape Art Contest in 2006.

Using Excel to paint- this guy is a smart artist!
This old man must have a hell of a good computer, since mine crashed under the load… lol.
This is amazing. I would never be able to do this. I don’t have the patience.:)
Oh wow, that is interesting.
