Contemporary (In this case, Emoji Art) art allows a wide array of materials to turn in to mediums in the hands of artists. Yung Jake, known for his music and Tumblr page that he has been using for posting GIF’s proved that emojis are more than replacements for words.
Compiling numerous emojis and arranging them in certain color schemes, the rapper created portraits of some of the most talked about figures of our time. The rapper depicted Miley Cyrus crowned with a tropical fruit and an enlarged size ‘happy’ emoji while sporting her signature tongue gesture. Other muses include Jay Z and Beyonce, Jerry Seinfeld, and Rhianna.
