What makes Ribeiro’s project so unique and rad is the fact that he has kept true to the simplistic design and detail of emojis while successfully capturing the essence of each band and artist. Ribeiro has reimagined legendary bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Backstreet Boys, Nirvana and Spice Girls as well as solo artists like Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams and David Bowie as playful emojis. Ribeiro also pays tribute to some deceased legends like Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and many more.
