Talk about making it hard on yourself: Hal Lasko, a legally blind 97-year-old, is using Microsoft Paint from Windows 95 to create art.
MS Paint, especially in its older iterations, is Microsoft’s notoriously feature-absent drawing program. In fact, it’s so basic that creating anything worth looking at is a challenge.
It doesn’t really bother Lasko, who discovered the software decades ago and spends 10 hours a day painting. He uses it to create paintings that resemble both pointillism and 8-bit art.
Lasko was recently featured on art blog Colossal. He has prints for sale online and his work is on exhibit for the first time.
