Honet’s exhibition revolves around Emojis in his words: „Gmojis (Graffiti-Emojis)“, symbols that are primary written using keyboard characters. As graffiti artist and illustrator he adds a personal twist onto them using antique or modern letters from different alphabets, in addition to punctuation, numerical, esoteric and popular symbols, as well as graffiti elements. He reinterprets the principal of anonymity and aliases of the graffiti culture, which means hiding the true identity behind a pseudonym, logo, style or aesthetic, but also the fact to be physically hidden from authorities when applying graffiti, by spraying at night or with face masks.
With his series, he wants to build a bridge within human forms of expression, such as writing and symbols, to which he clearly counts in graffiti. He includes graffiti in a lineage that starts far in the past with the first traces of human existence and continues into the future with the new forms of digital communication. He showcases the cryptic peculiarity of graffiti from a completely different perspective than we are used to in urban space.
