The Pixel Painter - Hal Lasko

Back when everything was done by hand Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a typographer. His family introduced him to MS Paint around fifteen years ago, and since he suffers from a condition causing blindness in the center of his vision, the computer is the only way he can express his passion for painting. The computer gives the 97-year old man the benefit of magnifying his work enough, compensating for his deteriorating eyesight. He spends up to ten hours a day moving pixels around, creating wonderful computer paintings, and his artwork would be best described as ‘a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art’. Meanwhile Hal Lasko has his work shown in an art exhibition for the first time.
