Electronic skins manufacturer SlickWraps recently released an iPhone skin featuring sections of Vincent Van Gogh's masterpiece Starry Night. The Starry Night iPhone skin is the latest installment in the company's Gallery Series. In spite of the company's devotion to electronics, it prefers to create skins the old-fashioned way. Workers first painstakingly recreate the chosen masterpiece, matching the original stroke for stroke by hand on high-quality canvas. The reconstruction is then cut into three rows and further dissected into iPhone-sized pieces that are ready and waiting to pimp out your phone.
Since each piece is hand painted, your skin will not just look like the original, it will feel like it too. If you're an art nerd, like me, you should be salivating at this point. Texture was an important aspect of the post-Impressionist movement. Paints were piled high, scored, molded and contorted. A print of such a work only gives you a part of the story and now, thanks to SlickWraps, you have the entire tale. Deck out your phone with the Starry Night iPhone skin and touch the untouchable.
