1980s Brick CellphoneTech_Cellphone_Gry_11x14 $33.00
It's hard to imagine a time when we didn't have a smartphone in our pocket. Portable cell technology really took off in the 2000s. They were relatively compact and opened up a whole new world of connectivity amongst friend. It's even harder to imagine how anyone then or today would find it possible to consider early 1970 and 80s era cellphones 'mobile' devices. Let's face it—they were huge and came by the nickname 'brick' honestly, but they were mobile and revolutionalized the world of communication as we know it.
The inspiration behind our 1980s Brick Cellphone Art Print
I can still remember the day in the late 80s a friend of mine showed me new purchase. He'd just spent $8000 on a new cellphone! That's right—$8K! And, it was massive, weighed about as much as a small brick, and he could only use it in a small part of the city. But I do remember it being pretty gnarly.
This print features a rendering I created of a 1980s Motorola. It makes a great addition to any pop-culture enthusiast's collection or for anyone that enjoys vintage-inspired art with a modern twist.
