“You’ve heard the phrase, There’s an app for that,” said Mr. Stone, “Well, now there’s an app to showcase art created exclusively on the iPhone, transforming this already revolutionary device into both an artist’s studio and exhibition space.”
Each piece of art in this virtual gallery is linked to the apps that were used to create it, giving artists and art lovers the tools to create and deliver their own art to iCreated. The exhibited work in the gallery is also linked to the contributing artist’s web site or other personal web space, so that iPhone users can communicate with the artist and discover more of that artist’s creations.
“Since people first started painting on cave walls,” says Mr. Leibowitz, “art has served our basic need to express ourselves and share our experience with others. iCreated brings that impulse into the 21st century.”
