20 Artist-Inspiring Mobile Apps

From Music Drawing Apps to Logo Generator Platforms

— February 20, 2015 — Tech
These artist-inspiring mobile apps range from musical drawing games to logo generator platforms that encourage one to show off their creativity and personal brand aesthetic. Artists and designers will fall in love with these apps thanks to their ability to boost creativity while on-the-go.

Standouts include pop art and watercolor-themed mobile apps that transform one's photographs with a vibrant filter and digital painting apps that allow users to create a masterpiece right on their smartphone.

An obsession with social media and our phones has resulted in a shift of creativity. This shift is highly focused on digital art and sharable photography that can be featured on personal websites or social media platforms like Instagram.

Thanks to this digital creativity revolution, mobile apps are becoming more artistic and are allowing both amateur and established artists to push themselves without the need for expensive equipment or a studio space.
