There's a level of ironic beauty that occurs when the new age finds itself so insightfully injected into iconic works of art

Ukrainian artist Nastya Nudnik has done just that in a series titled "emoji-nation. part 2."

Here the artist has brilliantly inserted new context to the works of American painter Edward Hopper, known for his masterpieces of social realismcapturing moments of solitude and loneliness.

By Photoshopping in the iconography of social media, Nudnik updates these works of art giving teens a way to understand post-modernism. J/k, lulz.
