97 years – Design and Pixel

Many know him as Grandpa. But Grandpa’s real name is Hal Lasko and he’s 97 years old. His art? 8-bit design with Windows 95 and Microsoft Paint.

His story is a long one. It began as a cartographer for the poor, then later Lasko was in typography and worked for Goodyear, among others. Today he is 97, almost blind, but brightly awake in spirit. He paints. With Microsoft Paint. His works are now available for the first time as an exhibition and as a print in online shops. But… why read. Let’s see it!
