Microsoft Excel is not conventionally associated with a relaxing post-retirement hobby, but 73-year-old TatsuoHoriuchi thought differently when he decided to pick up a copy of the spreadsheet software.
Horiuchi has been producing mesmerising art pieces using Excel's autoshapes function because he thought it would be cheaper than investing in expensive Adobe software.
He has already earned his stripes in the Excel art community (yes, there is such a thing) and continues to be featured in exhibitions.
Take a look at some more of his spreadsheet artworks here on ReadWrite.
