If you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area this week, you should really check out The LA Mobile Arts Festival. Tons of artists will be at Santa Monica Art Studios celebrating iPhoneography and the underground mobile arts movement with tons and tons of cool art installations that were all made with an iPhone.

The festival contains the largest ever exhibit of iPhoneography art, and will be open from August 18th-August 25th. The exhibit looks really awesome, and the organizers even sent Cult of Mac a sneak peak at some of the stuff you can find at the festival.

Here are just 12 of the many amazing iPhoneography works you can see at the festival:

  • Sean Murphy

    These are manipulated art projects.
    I would like to see the original iPhoto image.

  • popeyoni

    They are all fuzzy and hyper manipulated. They could’ve been taken with a Holga.

  • kimartino

    Why such hatred?! WHY??!! These are ALL beautiful!! This is what can be accomplished on a mobile phone!! Is it the whole Apple/iPhone thing that makes you haters so belligerent?!

  • Bruce Schrock

    Its not hard to photoshop an iphone pic into a beautiful piece. (if youre good at editing that is) but the contest should be that you have to take and edit the pic on the iPhone itself. Now that’d be something.

    @Bruce Shrock – What the hell do you think these images are? Of course they were all done ONLY on the iPhone. Why do you presume otherwise?

    As curator of P1xels—The Art of the iPhone, http://pixelsatanexhition.com, (and happy to say I featured most these images over the past year or two as well) I can assure you the battles over this issue were fought in early 2010: iphonic art is defined by the device itself: the iPhone. Apple concurred.

    Having looked at a minimum of forty thousand images over the past three, years, I can assure you that one cannot app a bad picture into a good one: I’ve seen hundreds of artists try, including myself.
    Make no mistake: this is a new art form. An editor of a photography magazine dismissed the whole movement as “push-button Monets.” My response to to him and others who disparage the work: “Let’s see you do it.” :::::::::::::::crickets:::::::::::::::::

    I had a curator (with an MAF in photography) dismiss our work in talks about a show we were planning. Regarding iphonic artists, she said “All they do is push a button.” I replied,”Isn’t that what photographers do?” Interestingly that show garnered a write-up in the Washington Post.

    So relax, enjoy the show and the work.
