It’s time to take some classic art and emoji all over it.
There’s a new art gallery on Tumblr and it’s full of emojis. If you think this is blasphemy, maybe you just don’t understand why emojis are so great (that links to a New York Times article, duh). The Emojinal Art Gallery does an alright job at integrating beloved texting pictures with famous works of arts. The reactions, also posted on the site, range from “it’s like you want me to kill myself” to “I LOVE YOU SO MUCH LET ME FUCK YOU.”
They’re calling for submissions so hopefully it will get better. The twitter #emojiarthistory meme that swept through our feed in February proved how handsomely art and emojis can get along. In the meantime, check out some of the emoji artwork from the Emojinal Art Gallery below.
