Do you think you are too old to do new and exciting things? Every soul and mind on this planet can be creative whether you are 7, 17, 47 or 77 years old, and Tatsuo Horiuchi from Japan is exactly that. He is 77 and he found a way to show his artistic side, by using Microsoft Excel for his art that most of would only think it is for spreadsheet calculations. But, many were so wrong!

Drawings and Picture Manipulation in Microsoft Excel

In this video below, you can see he is drawing and putting images together in the program. He uses the basic drawing functions that the program has as well as the basic picture functions and has made it into a living hobby. At the age of 77, this is very impressive and is an example for many people at his age. If you continue exploring, creating, imagining, then you will have a rich life but if you stop using your mind and creativity, your whole aura will suffer, your immune system breaks down and you are vulnerable to many illnesses as well as the advancement of age.

Tatsuo Horiuchi makes Amazing art in a spreadsheet program

Personally, I think that this elderly man in Japan is doing great art. He is for sure the Michelangelo of Microsoft Excel as described in the video. He uses his artistic side, is 77 and lives a healthier life than most. He manages to create amazing art and paintings with just using Microsoft Excel. He is a very good example for everyone at any age. Be creative, have a healthier life. Its really that simple!

He found out that Excel can be used for more than just a accounting spreadsheet. He liked it and uses his creativity to so others can enjoy his pieces and perhaps inspire them. Everything that you and I do in our life is to express ourselves. Art is showing what Tatsuo Horiuchi loves doing and that’s what art creativity is all about too.

All of his paintings and creations need not to be loved by anyone. But from my perspective, I think he is doing an amazing job. I really like his paintings and it really shows that anyone at any age can show their creative side and style.

Be creative – Be healthy … Simple, isn’t it? It is…!
