Artist Matthew LaPenta creates emoji art by producing sculptures of the most popular and iconic emojis.

Emojis have become almost a second 'language' for many Millennials, with hundreds of options for people to use. This smartphone language in the form of pictures has blown up in popularity and Matthew LaPenta is taking advantage of this fact by recreating emojis in 3D sculpture form for people to use to decorate their homes. The artist recreated some of the most popular icons for his emoji art -- including the kissing emoji, the sleeping emoji, the laughing emoji and he even prayer hands.

The artist also recreated the 'keep it 100' emoji in the form of a limited edition neon sculpture that can last for up to eight years. This unique emoji art is an excellent way to capture the attention of Millennials.
