Emojis To Sum Up The Art World In 2021
Because small icons say so much more than words
Art Girls Jungle 28 Jun 2021

We’re all tired. Sometimes typing out messages is just too much effort. Constant lockdowns, end of lockdowns, new media, new technology, new methods of making art, non-fungible this, non-fungible that…STOP. During these mad times, emojis are the simplest way to express how we’re feeling. Here are our favourite emojis to sum up the art world in 2021. 

The Eye Roll Emoji

Let’s be honest, we all eye-roll multiple times a day. In fact, being part of the art world means you are probably a pro at it. I mean, nothing surprises us anymore. 

The Kiss Emoji

The emoji we send our art squad 24/7 to remind them how much we love and appreciate them. Seal it with a kiss dah-ling!

The Four Leaf Clover Emoji

Because after the year we all just had, we could do with a piece of good luck. And, luckily for us, it seems like normality is edging ever closer. 

The Happy Cry Emoji

For those moments when we can’t believe what’s happening and we really want to cry but instead we are maintaining our composure and smiling on the outside. 

The Selfie Emoji

I mean, were we even at the opening if we didn’t take a pic? No, I don’t think so!

The Face Palm Emoji

For those moments when NFTs make more money than highly revered artists. We won’t leave names, but you all know what we’re talking about.

The Clown Emoji

Because 99.9% of the time the art world feels like the circus. 

The Coffin Emoji

Ok, so we hope it’s not that bad for all of you, but we did ask one art friend who replied with this one. Remember, when times get tough, there’s always an art pal to send the kiss emoji and make you feel better again.
