Proporta has unveiled a couple of swanky new iPhone 4 cases as a result of a partnership with Brighton based artist Ben Allen.

The hard shell cases come in two designs - Skull and Zebra - which are inspired by the punk movement and "visions of the streets and the wild becoming one". Indeed.

“This is a great project and I am excited not only to be working with Proporta, but also to see the reaction to my designs and how they translate onto these products,” said Ben Allen.    

Lynnette Prigmore, of Proporta said: "We're really pleased to introduce Ben Allen as part of the new 'Proporta Collaborates' collection.

"Not only is Ben a fellow Brighton local, but his paintings have also been exhibited in galleries and venues worldwide. We anticipate that this new collection will be very well received. Our customers are becoming much more design focused and want to accessorise, as well as protect, their mobile gadgets." 

Ben Allen has worked with the likes of Levis, Virgin, Channel 5, Nokia, DJ Erick Morrillo, Subliminal Records and The Hoxton Hotel and has sold his work to many a high-flyer including Richard Branson, Stephen Dorff, Sophie Ellis- Bextor and Jade Jagger.   

Skull and Zebra are available now priced at £24.95
