Emoji Paintings

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. Examining how significance of technology can be applied to painting and communicating ideas.

These symbols represent globalization in a sense of communication across the world with one recognizable visual language.​

Almost all painted elements are emoji and this painting series explores and questions the contemporary culture.
