HalLasko5 hal-lasko-005
Hal Lasko uses Microsoft Paint, of all things, to create intricate, wonderful landscapes and scenes. He’s a charming man, who was introduced to MS Paint by his grandsons fifteen years ago, and has turned it into a real skill for fine art. And oh yeah, he’s partially blind as well, his macular degeneration only letting him see out of the corners of his eyes. Watch this fabulous short film about Hal and his art, it will make you smile.
