You know Excel right? The world famous spreadsheet program that can be used for storing, organizing and manipulating data.
I use it myself for different kinds of formulas and calculations and have been using it for many, many years but NEVER did the thought come across that I could make art of it!
The following artwork is created by a 73 year old Japanese man and believe it or not – he made it in Excel!
His name is Tatsuo Horiuchi and he says this:
“Other specialized graphic software is expensive, and Excel came pre-installed in PCs,”
“I saw other people neatly drawing graphs, and I thought it seemed like Excel could be used to draw art.”
During the last 10 years, Tatsuo has establish himself as an digital artists and shows his traditional and amazingly beautiful Japanese motifs at different exhibitions.
