Take a look at this artists incredible commitment to his craft. In 1965, at the age of 34, Roman Opalka decided he was going to spend the rest of his life counting to infinity to signify the passing of time. The. rest. of. his. LIFE. He begins each canvas at the top left corner and diligently writes out each number with the same hand on the same sized canvas each time. He completes each day with a self-portrait to further document his work. At 84 years old, he has now painted over 200 canvases, has well passed the five million mark and has no intention of quitting. He will be doing this until the day he dies. Insanely poetic, insanely dedicated, insanely insane.
