About the Author

Jorge Colombo, a Portuguese-born illustrator, designer, and photographer, has lived in the USA for more than twenty years, and he has been depicting American urban landscape ever since. His lushly rendered scenes are currently finger painted from life, on location, and using an iPhone, bringing the idea of traditional outdoor easel painting into the 21st century. Regularly released as 20x200.com limited edition prints, his images have appeared several times on the cover of The New Yorker, and there is a blog devoted to his work, Finger Paintings, on newyorker.com. His view of the city and his art are influenced by Woody Allen movies, Edward Hopper paintings, and Arthur Getz illustrations, among others. His first cover for The New Yorker, in June 2009, was the first time a smartphone-created image made the cover of a magazine.

Jen Bekman is an art-dealer, curator, writer, and entrepreneur, whose projects include her eponymous Manhattan gallery, the curated limited-edition fine-art print website 20x200, and the international photography competition Hey, Hot Shot!

Christoph Niemann is an illustrator, graphic designer, and author of several books, including I LEGO N.Y, who writes and illustrates the New York Times blog Abstract City.

Format: Hardcover
I love Jorge Colombo's work. I've bought a handful of his prints online, and have them hanging in my smallish, NYC-area home. If I had more wall space, I'd definitely buy more. Until then, however, this book does the trick for me. There are a LOT of his paintings in here, and I'm still amazed he created all of these with his phone. I may be a bit biased since I'm a native New Yorker, but I'm guessing that a lot of non-New York people would really like this as well.

Prime example of a new technology implemented well. Colombo's work highlights the new art form I've coined "Ipadographs" and "Iphonographs"

The basic design of the book competes with the paintings. If it didn't I would give it 5 stars. Jorge Colombo is amazing. He's also a brilliant photographer.
