Sculptmojis By Ben Fearnley

Emojis as works of art.

When he’s not creating colorful images and visuals for renowned brands, New York-based 3D artist and designer Ben Fearnley tells stories with his digital illustrations and CGI imagery. And what better way to tell a modern story than with the helpful aides of digital communication? Fun and creative, the Sculptmojis series provides a playful twist on traditional sculpture. Emojis become artworks to give a new meaning to a serious medium. Thus, the universal language of the emojis meets the universal appeal of classic art. At the same time, the images encourages the viewer to think about various concepts; from the relationship between old and modern to the way we relate to the simple representations of powerful emotions. All wrapped up in humorous compositions.

Some images have a clear narrative, such as the group of statues ‘reacting’ at the sight of a smashed smartphone, while others reference classic sculptures. The series also challenges perception by blurring the line between traditional medium and the digital one. Ultimately, the Sculptmojis go beyond their visual appeal to bring a smile on the viewers’ faces with their playful concept. Photographs© Ben Fearnley Design.
