CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT

The Pixel Painter. Hal Lasko, 98 years old, has spent the last years using MS Paint to digitally create amazing works of art, spending up to 10 hours a day on his work, a mix between pointillism and 8-bit art. Originally a traditional painter, he switched to MS Paint in 2005 when his vision was impaired by wet macular degeneration, an eye disease that causes blindness in the center of his vision. He has since created more than 150 digital works pixel by pixel. Watch a lovely video about Lasko and his work in Vimeo, and read Wired's article here.

Looking forward to Paul Klee's retrospective about to open at Tate Modern, Philip Hensher in The Guardian, explains why comedy is at the heart of Klee's work – from joyously splodgy lines to grotesqueries that poke fun at dictators, and why he loves the artist's willingness to combat oppression with laughter. Read article in The Guardian.
