Meet Hal Lasko, the 97-Year-Old Pixel Painter

Pixel Painter

Hal Lasko is legally blind, but that doesn’t stop him from creating awe-inspiring works of art. His medium of choice is especially unusual. Hal doesn’t use oil or pencils; rather, he uses a mouse and Microsoft Paint to come up with unique and detailed masterpieces. The basic paint program has a zoom feature, so Hal takes advantage of that to make up for his deteriorating eyesight.

Hal, aka the Pixel Painter, began creating pixel art fifteen years ago. He’s pretty dedicated to his craft too, as he spends about ten hours a day in front of the PC working on his latest piece.
