Art: Hal Lasko: The Pixel Painter

By Maria Seda-Reeder · March 11th, 2014 · CityBeat Recommends

The almost-100-year-old Hal Lasko, a retired typographer from American Greetings (where he worked as a lettering consultant for nearly 50 years), painted oil and watercolors throughout his professional career and up until the late ’90s, when his grandson gave him a computer. Diagnosed with wet macular degeneration, a disease that affects his sight, Lasko’s use of computing software, specifically Microsoft Paint, allows the artist to enlarge sections of his works and paint them pixel-by-pixel, developing his own contemporary pointillist style.

His works range from abstract designs to landscapes and still lifes. 

Artist Reception: 5-7 p.m. Thursday. On view until March 30. Philip M. Meyers Jr. Memorial Gallery, Steger Student Life Center, University of Cincinnati campus, Clifton, daapgalleries@uc.edu, 513-556-2839.
