Edvard Munch would have a fit if he ever saw his works getting diluted by an iPhone case. The Scream case adopts the persona of the famous painting done by the Norwegian artist, and is an expression of modern art. The agonized face that we see in the painting is the most iconic images of our times. It is perceived as a symbol of anxiety that a modern man goes through. Perhaps the recent events at Apple – Ive’s exit, tepid design of the iPhone 11 – can be seen in the same light; given our addiction to the brand.

“It is almost a tradition for Apple fan to make fun of new iPhone camera design since Apple introduce camera bump, and it hits peak today after Apple introduced iPhone 11’s triple cameras design, we think it will be both interesting and inspirational to share something that we created for iPhone X back then, to expressing how we can look at today’s smartphone design with eyes of art,” 2-LA DESIGN told Yanko Design.
The Scream is the popular name given to multiple versions of a composition by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The works show a figure with an agonized expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky. Arthur Lubow has described The Scream as “an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time.
The slightly sculpted surface makes the case visually attractive also provides an anti-slippery grip in hand.
