'Emoji' Painting Series
This painting series explores contemporary symbolism – Emoji.
I was interested in investigating the significance of the ways we communicate online by using Emoji,
which have become a huge part of our global visual language.
Through this series of paintings, I am translating something digital and quick into something that is slowly, precisely and traditionally painted on canvas.
These symbols represent globalization in a sense of communication across the world with one recognizable visual language. (contemporary global hieroglyphs)
Almost all painted elements are emojis - examining how significance of technology can be applied to painting and communicating ideas.
