British Artist Developed Dazzle It for World War One Centenary
Sep 08, 2015
British artist Sir Peter Blake has designed a smartphone app that lets you turn photos into pop art based on First World War "Dazzle ships."
Dazzle It, which is available for iOS and Android, blends the user's photos with dazzle-art designs created by Blake and other artists, then displays them on virtual boats. According to The Guardian, Blake said he hoped the app would help aspiring artists "discover more about the way in which early 20th century artists participated in the war effort". He was commissioned to create a dazzle ship design, Everybody Razzle Dazzle, for the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop in Liverpool earlier this year.
