Emojis that we use every day are not labeled, so their meaning is always up to those who use them. You and the person next to you can interpret each sign differently. It's a matter of perception and cultural background of course.


Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese e (絵, "picture") + moji (文字, "character"); the resemblance to the English word emotion is purely coincidental.

Almost all of my works are available as limited edition fine-art photography prints. See sizes and options available. If you don't find the one you like in the shop, please send me a direct request.
