I Turned My Emoji Keyboard Into A Frida Kahlo Art Gallery

A few months back we launched a fine art emoji project: emoji versions of famous artists and their work. It got a lot of attention online.

But what meant the most to us was how the art history community embraced the project. We didn’t expect museum directors to call and thank us. We didn’t expect teachers to ask for high resolution versions for lectures. We didn’t expect to be in someones master’s thesis. We got to be a part educating people about our heroes. So we kept going.


We took our most popular emoji artist, Frida Kahlo, and teamed up with the Frida Kahlo Corporation to create 160 FridaMoji. We explored all of Frida’s anguish, beauty, and pain. We studied all of her most famous self portraits. (We even watched that melodrama with Salma Hayek.) Then we took everything we learned and converted into emoji form for your texting pleasure…or sadness.
