A Ukrainian artist has given the pieces of the great Edward Hopper a 21st-century touch-up. Nastya Nudnik, of Kiev, decided to insert social media symbols and emojis into the artist's paintings. "I realized that some of his characters deserve the right to be more active and dynamic," Nudnik told The Huffington Post.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art writes that the works of Hopper, who died in 1967, are "pervaded by a sense of silence and estrangement." After viewing Nudnik's "emoji-nation. part 2," we doubt Hopper's subjects would feel any happier tweeting or sharing.
