With the release of the OnePlus 5 earlier this month comes a new set of wallpapers but unlike some other devices, these wallpapers are actually quite interesting, so interesting that we are going to write this article about them.
The OnePlus 5 wallpapers were designed by the artist Hampus Olsson, who took to his blog to talk about the wallpapers and show them off.
Here’s what he said about them:
I thought I would experiment with macro photography this time, together with my dad, who was currently visiting me in India. We got a bunch of plastic containers which we started pouring acrylic, ink, and mediums into. We captured a bunch of photos of the fluid mix, while it was changing pattern quickly. Many of the photos could be used in various ways, like being wrapped onto 3D surfaces, or mixed to look like hot lava and cold winds to complement the final artwork. However, most of these photos weren’t used. Instead, I created a more refined and subtle style that was developed to fit the style OnePlus was looking for with this phone.
The final artworks have a greater focus on the individual shapes, blending into its surrounding, barren environment. The focus became the centerpiece, which is abstract, yet easy to grasp. I love how these wallpapers turned out, and I will experiment with this style more extensively in the future.
He also uploaded all of these wallpapers to his blog, with a number of abstract wallpapers available that won’t just look great on the OnePlus 5’s AMOLED display, but pretty much any smartphone.
