Cantor Fine Art Gallery recently started an Instagram project that took requests for emoji versions of legendary artists, like Salvador Dali, Vincent van Gogh and Frida Kahlo, along with famous artworks, such as Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus." What resulted was an awesome little series designed by the Gallery, which you can explore more in Carey Dunne's article on Hyperallergic, "From Botticelli to Basquiat, Art History Goes Emoji."
While these emojis are not yet real/functional, we think it should only be a matter of time...What art history emoji would you design?
