"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."
David Scott Leibowitz is a pioneer in the developing medium of digital art and part of a generation of artists who are redefining the boundaries of fine arts and popular culture. Having come of age during the information revolution, his work merges an appreciation for the plastic arts with an affinity for advanced computer technology. He began his artistic career with the manipulation of Polaroid SX-70 film in 1977 and has pursued the creation of new visual languages through the use of photography, videography, 3D renderings and collage using the Macintosh platform. His work, which can be viewed on his website Leibo.net, has been exhibited in a number of museums and galleries and has been included in the corporate collections of IBM, Philip Morris, Polaroid, and American Association for the Advancement of Science.
