While these classical paintings done by famous artists throughout the Renaissance period might seem familiar to the viewer, at closer inspection they will quickly realize that each artwork features a hidden modern day emoji embedded into the painting. These revamped works are designed by an artist known under the pseudonym Edvard Emoji and they cleverly merge together antiquated and new age forms of expression.

As emojis have become a visual language used by many on a daily basis, seeing them integrated into classical oil paintings creates a stark contrast between the two time periods. Edvard Emoji has creatively hidden an emoji in each of the famous works including slices of pizza, glasses of wine, party hats and purses that viewers can have fun trying to spot.
