73-year-old Japanese man creates breathtaking paintings using Microsoft Excel only

Tatsuo Horiuchi, a 73-year-old Japanese artist/designer, created breathtaking paintings using Microsoft Excel. Although Horiuchi has never used MS Excel, it was cheaper than Photoshop since it was preinstalled on his computer.

Horiuchi has been interested in graphic arts for a while, but it wasn’t until his retirement in 2001 that he finally decided to pursue his passion. Horiuchi’s artworks has been featured in many exhibitions and he even won the Excel Autoshape Art Contest in 2006.

Check out his amazing artwork below.

Don’t believe these were created in MS Excel?
