At the beginning of the 20th century, when artists tried to find new meaning to their existence and their means of expression, were born the famous Avant-garde movements. Despite several differences, what the Avant-garde sought was the destruction of the form, starting from the ideal boundary of the white canvas. They wanted to bring art outside of its institutional limits, dilating it in “practical” life.
After 100 years, we are all realizing this ambitious aesthetic project through the use of common objects customized with portraits, drawings and artistic works. And in this technological age, the ones we use the most are the cover and the case for our smartphones and tablets. caseable is an online shop that produces hand-crafted cover for laptop, table, eReaders and smartphones. The cases, made of recycled materials, can be chosen among the works from their Artist collection, ranging from black and white photograph of London Ronya Galka to the collages of Bianca Green.
In this post you can see an art work of iPhone cover and iPad case by Mark Ashkenazi, an Israeli artist based in New York with a portfolio that ranges from eye-catching pop art, comics and cartoons to portraits and colorful animal art. The work that I chose is called “Pop Underwear” and you can well understand why! Beyond that, caseable gives the opportunity to create your own custom case through a simple tool that allows the site to upload your own creativity.
