80-year-old man masters Excel to create amazing pictures

80-year-old Tatsuo Horiuchi from Japan is known worldwide for his incredible drawing skills. However, he does not use pencils, pens, or paints for his art. Instead, he creates masterpieces in Microsoft Excel.

About 20 years ago, before retiring, Horiuchi thought he needed a new challenge in his life. Therefore, he settled on painting. However, he didn't want to spend money on art supplies - he decided to use his computer. But he didn’t choose any fancy digital painting software and chose Excel.
