“77-year-old Japanese artist Tatsuo Horiuchi chooses to work with Microsoft Excel to produce his beautiful works of art. His “paintings” are remarkably intricate works that mimic traditional Japanese paintings that offer scenic views of natural landscapes rich with cultural motifs.” https://mymodernmet.com/tatsuo-horiuchi-excel-spreadsheet-paintings/

The artist has undoubtedly created something “unique” and “unprecedented” but given the fact that he uses Excel his art is clearly not “unrepeatable.” Critics argue that since Horiuchi’s art is easily repeatable it lacks artistic merit.
