NAME: iPhone Oil Paintings
AUTHOR: JK Keller
DESCRIPTION: These paintings are not another proof of the great art one can create on a drawing app for an iOS device but they are art works made with the artist face oil from the phone’s screen. JK Keller makes a very good use of oil and of its reflective abilities in this series where patterns drawn on the greasy touch screen become animated GIFs.
AMUSEMENT RATE: You must have thought right away of the heavy influence of body art in JK Keller’s work. His pieces reinvent the use of the body of the artist as a medium. So much depth and reflexion in his art. Just kidding. I’m not sure JK Keller wants to reference anybody but his creations are refreshing and way more fun and interesting than most of the iPhone art we’ve seen lately. I already made some drawings on my oily touch screen but I’ve never reached this level of perfection. Great job.
