First, mobile phones started to replace the landlines, then the camera, then the laptop and now the iPhone is even attempting to replace the paintbrush! While I can’t imagine a time when the artist will reach for his mobile rather than his palette to work, it’s already perfectly possible to produce a veritable masterpiece using nothing more than an iPhone and a carefully selected app, such as Brushes or Sketch Mobile. Take a look at the 30 Incredible Works of Art Created on iPhone below for an insight into the artistic possibilities of the mobile age.
1. Speed Limit
Stef Kardos is an art director at Disney with a penchant for iPhone finger-painting. This midnight blue number is quite the visual treat.
This otherworldly creature was drawn using the latest updates to the app, Inspire, such as dry brush mode which is great for adding texture.
3. Collage Girl (David Scott Leibowitz)
This abstract masterpiece was made on an iPhone from photos taken on an iPhone.
4. New Yorker (Jorge Colombo)
Few iPhone artists have risen to the dizzy heights of fame reached by Jorge Colombo. His work graced the front cover of the New Yorker in May last year.
5. iPhone Painting (Magnus Blank)
Magnus Blank’s scribbled yet colorful iPhone paintings are heavily reminiscent of Phil Frost’s work.
6. iPhone Art (Dex Craig)
This intergalactic vista was created using Brushes.
7. Potrait (Jon Keegan)
A light-hearted caricature of a big-nosed beardy man made in Brushes.
8. iPhone Painting (Pat David)
This Warholian painting of a ketchup bottle is a fantastic composition.
