Art created on the iPhone, such as this piece called "Self Portrait," will be featured at the L.A. Mobile Arts Festival in Santa Monica, Calif. Aug. 18 to 25.
Many artists are claiming the iPhone as their primary tool, and it's not just for photographs.
The L.A. Mobile Arts Festival will open Saturday in Santa Monica, Calif., and feature more than 600 pieces from an artistic community dedicated to making art on mobile devices, according to the Los Angeles Times. Sure the vast majority will be photos, but about 100 pieces will be digital paintings and sculptures.
"This is just a chance to show people that there's a lot more really creative work going on and much more than they might expect that's possible to do with these devices," Daria Polichetti, one of the co-founders of iPhoneArt.com, told the Times.
About 225 mobile artists are expected to come to the festival from around the country and 30 other nations. The festival opens 7 p.m. Saturday and lasts until Aug. 25.
