Painting with Pixels

Here's a picture by David Hockney, whose work I've talked about I've talked about before in my blog here.

David Hockney, The Arrival of Spring

This is a work which the 76 year-old artist created using an i-Pad, and then has been blown up to a vast size. Pixels are used like paint.  An old dog learns new technological tricks in order to create.

Here's a picture by American artist Hal Lasko.

Looking Up, Hal Lasko

Making Mr Hockney look like a spring chicken, 98-year-old Mr Lasko, who is registered blind with wet macular degeneration,  made this using Microsoft Paint.  

Trained as a graphic designer, he took up creating with the computer in recent years when his sight began to go, and now works up to ten hours a day on pieces.

I'd like to see his work blown up to fifty feet long and put in the Royal Academy.

 Hal Lasko, Woods in Avon
