Hands-On Mobile unvieled mixtART, an
SMS service that allows independent artists to sell their original
works of art as wallpapers to mobile subscribers.
mixtART provides mobile users access to an art application, offering a variety of wallpapers created by
an array of artists. Many artists featured on mixtART will be attending
ComiCon which will be taking place in San Diego from July 24 to the
27th. At ComiCon, the artists will be unveiling works of art, which
customers will be able to purchase immediately for their mobile phones.
Participating artists include Patrick Ma, Buff Monster, Jon
Burgerman, Brent McHugh, Patricio Oliver, Alex Pardee, Ekundayo and
Dave Correia, Noferin and Astro. For those that cannot make the event,
many of the wallpapers will be available on www.mymixt.com/mixtart.
"More and more independent artists are discovering the benefits of
digital media to promote their art to the public, and mobile delivery
is the perfect opportunity for them to share their work with a vast,
diverse audience," said Michael Temkin, Chief Technology Officer of
Hands-On Mobile. "The artists we are currently working with have
exemplary portfolios, and we are looking forward to offering additional
creative wallpapers to mobile customers on a monthly basis."
