The Pixel Painter: A 97 Year Old Man Who Draws Using Microsoft Paint from Windows 95
Meet Hal Lasko, a 97-year-old man who uses Microsoft Paint from Windows 95 to create artwork that has been described as “a collision of pointillism and 8-Bit art.” Lasko, legally blind, served in WWII drafting maps for bombing raids and later worked as a typographer before retiring in the 1970s. Decades after his retirement his family introduced him to Microsoft Paint. Lasko is now having his work shown for the first time in an art exhibition and also has prints for sale online.

Art Makes You Smart - NYTimes.com. From the article: "...visiting an art museum exposes students to a diversity of ideas that challenge them with different perspectives on the human condition.

Dreams of the Sonora Aero Club: Accidental Mysteries, Charles Dellschau (1830-1923) is one of the earliest documented outsider artists known in America. What began as an illustrated manuscript recounting his experiences in the California Gold Rush became an obsessive project resulting in twelve large, hand-bound books with more than 2500 drawings related to airships and the development of flight.

Sonora Aero Club watercolor, Charles August Albert Dellschau (1830 - 1923)
In 1969, art history student, Mary Jane Victor, was scouring through his bazaar of castaways when she came upon the mysterious works of a certain Charles Dellschau. Inside the scrapbooks she discovered a remarkable collection of strange watercolours and collage pieces. More than 2,500 intricate drawings of flying machines alongside cryptic newspaper clippings filled the pages, crudely sewn together with shoelaces and thread.

Book Paintings by Ekaterina Panikanova
Ekaterina Panikanova, art, painting, books
Artist Ekaterina Panikanova creates densely layered paintings across large spreads of old books and other documents, resulting in artwork that blurs the lines between painting, installation and collage. Born in St. Petersburg in 1975 Panikanova graduated at the top of her class from the Academy of Fine Arts and was subsequently given a studio to work from for five years. She now lives and works in Rome.
Book-Paintings-by-Ekaterina-Panikanova-4: While the desecration of a book may give you fits, this artist has created an unusual canvas for her work that melds beautifully with the subjects and her monotonic color scheme.

In her series “Errata,” artist Ekaterina Panikanova creates large-scale paintings using grids of open books as her canvas. The paintings feature disquieting, almost nightmarish images of childhood, memory, and mental illness. The book grids allow the paintings to be mixed and matched by turning pages, allowing the artist to create collages of multiple subjects.

Incredible Self Portraits by 14-Year-Old Photographer. 14-year-old Zev from Natick, Massachusetts, has taken the photography world by storm with his surreal photo manipulations. Better known by the nickname of ‘fiddle oak’, Zev presents a highly imaginative portfolio of surreal self-portraits, which he created together with his sister Nellie (aged 17). His work seems to mirror the transition from the fairy-tale childhood worlds into those that are way more complicated and still unknown.
