Agreed. I saw a mashup of Klimt and the Addams Family on a tattoo. One of the greatest original pieces I’ve ever seen.

THE MEAT EMOJI IN SATURN DEVOURING HIS SON IS KILLING ME I CANT BREATHE I’m so lucky I’m alone in the office rn 💀

This is INCREDIBLE. It should all be in a museum. There should be art contests of emoji recreation. You'd win first place if only for The Kiss (though they're all absolutely spectacular, like, gosh, the time you must have spent on some).

NATE THESE ARE AMAZING AND I AM CACKLING AT THE DESCRIPTIONS. I’m seriously in awe, especially at the Sunflowers one which IS definitely successful. Honestly, these deserve to be displayed in a museum alongside their predecessors.

These are both amusing but also, remarkably good. Sunflowers in particular really hit me with it's execution! It's so good!

"The artist began this piece completely confident in the existence of a pitchfork emoji. The artist was wrong."

I could not stop laughing at this, mostly because of the relatability of it all.

I can’t stop laughing at Adam’s little arm peen in “The Creation of Adam” 🤣

This is absolutely amazing. I am just blown away by how you did these. I don't think I've ever seen a better "waste of time" in my life. :)

This is hilarious, and yes, definitely art, not that anybody was asking the question this way anyway. Thanks for sharing!

Dunking on Roy Lichtenstein. It's food for the soul.

These are amazing. Adam's tiny lower "arm" took me out 😆

I am beyond impressed at each and every one of these and, as someone currently pasting 900 siren sounds together to see what happens, I feel a sense of profound kinship with you in the world of ‘strangely beautiful absurd things that took probably a little too much work by most capitalist estimates of such things’.

I can say with total confidence that this is, in fact, ART. I'm so impressed and delighted
