Artist Nastya Nudnik's ‘Emoji-nation’ series adds elements of computer user interface to great, historic works of art.

“I adore playing on contrasts and try to put dualism in every work, no matter if it is an illustration, a painting or a collage," she says. "Emoji-nation is a complex of different projects united by one idea.” She is based in Kiev, Ukraine. Behance, Tumblr [via Asylum Art].
