Long before iPhone there was WAP and Wop-art by Giselle Beiguelman.

In 2001 she launched a mobile phone art web site with a collection of tiny black and white drawings, not event gray scale, that could be downloaded using WAP protocol and enjoyed on the tiny monochrome screen that were a common for mobile phones outside of Japan. Its quite amazing how much things have changed since then …

There is a good article in Guardian that talks about Giselle Beiguelman work, I also downloaded a bunch of her drawings in the original WAP size which can be experienced below.
