Anshuman Ghosh is a creative mix media artist working out of South Africa that cleverly uses smartphones as an additional artwork canvas in his series of illustrations. The works of art cleverly fuse hand drawn illustrations of every day options with animated video showcased on a iPhone screen that is held up and used as part of the overall image. The pieces mix both traditional forms of art and modern modes of technology as a way to bridge the two mediums together.

Ghosh's illustrations intergrade a slew of different materials to capture seemingly normal scenes through flat and moving images. The moving images are shown on an iPhone while the flat images are drawings done by Ghosh. The pieces showcase normal day-to-day activities such as making toast or looking out a window.
