nastya nudnik is an artist from Kiew. She inserts social media symbols into famous works or art. To date she these have included such well-known artists as Edward Hopper and Michelangelo. She tears the iconic paintings away from the past and into the 21st century by including symbols that we all know and use on practically a daily basis: smiling icons, pop-up alerts and Instagram emblems. Her use of the various symbols makes a different point every time. You can see the humor, but also feel a twinge or remorse at her commentary. Doesn’t the bleakness of a Hopper lose it’s elegant and deeply philosophical angst and become even bleaker in a way?
