David Hockney, iPhone Drawing 2009
It was only a matter of time for the artist's canvas to turn into the artist's screen and if it's good enough for David Hockney then that's enough to get everyone's attention to this new medium. While Hockney dabbled in the digital colour palette with his fingers on the first generation iPhone, the recent release of the Nomad Brush provides the artist with an extremely responsive handcrafted stylus - made from a blend of natural and conductive fibres, the soft and flexible bristles glide across touch screen devices effortlessly. With not a scent of solvent or stain of paint anywhere to be had - a luxury in itself - the Nomad Brush is a stroke of genius for the next generation of on-the-go media artists who upload onto the gallery spaces of the world wide web.
