Japanese old man creates amazing pictures using Excel (Wait, Excel?)

Original author: BRIAN ASHCRAFT

But why excel?
Horiuchi told PC Online, Japan: “Other specialized graphics software is expensive, and Excel is pre-installed on your PC,” adding that the program is easy to use and more familiar than paint.

A senior citizen said that he did not use Excel in his usual work.
“I saw other people plotting neatly, and I thought Excel could be used to create pictures.” Before he quit the company, he felt he wanted to do something new. He bought a computer and started using Excel. And ten years later, he established himself as a digital artist, demonstrating his work at exhibitions.

Other artists used Excel to paint, of course. However, how many of them are retirees creating traditional and stunning Japanese motifs? Little!
