Hometown of the Emoji: Dominique Petrin's Screenprinted Spaces

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to live inside a land of digitalized color, aka the hometown of the emoji,  you do not have to wonder any more. Montreal-based artist Dominique Petrin creates vivid installations by making colorful silkscreen prints and then strategically placing them to create totally immersive spaces. Her works may include some geometric patterns, digitalized areas reminiscent of Mario Brothers backgrounds, pixelated palm trees and a "poop" emoji thrown in for good measure. Her decorated spaces remind me of a rendering of the dream house I would have created while obsessed with "The Sims". Check out some of her work below:
