In today’s world, people often express themselves via emoji.

One touch of your finger informs others that you’re annoyed, happy or sad without having to type — or worse, speak — a word.

Kiev artist Nastya Ptichek brought the new world into the old through her art project “Emoji-Nation,” which incorporates computer technology into classic paintings.

Ptichek recently told Wired that she “realized that standard iOS emojis strongly resemble some well-known paintings of famous artists,” like this emoji representation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

Francis Bacon Painting Sets Auction World Record (VIDEO)

 A 1969 painting by Francis Bacon set a world record for most expensive artwork ever sold at auction.

“Three Studies of Lucian Freud” was purchased for $142,405,000 at Christie’s postwar and contemporary art sale on Tuesday night. The triptych depicts Bacon’s artist friend.

The work sold after “6 minutes of fierce bidding in the room and on the phone,” Christie’s said in a statement. The price includes the buyer’s premium. Christie’s did not say who bought the painting.

The price surpassed the nearly $120 million paid for Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” which set a world record when it was sold at Sotheby’s in a 2012 sale.

The previous record for Bacon’s artwork sold at auction was his 1976 “Triptych.” That sold for $86 million in 2008.

Among other highlights scheduled to be auctioned at Christie’s is a bright orange-yellow and white oil painting by Mark Rothko. Reminiscent of a radiating sunset, the 1957 large-scale “Untitled (No. 11)” could fetch up to $35 million. In May 2012, Christie’s sold Rothko’s “Orange, Red, Yellow” for $86.8 million, a record for any contemporary artwork at auction.

Edvard Munch’s iconic work, “The Scream,” broke a world record tonight, becoming the most expensive artwork sold in an auction.

Estimates for the sale varied from $80 million to $200 million. The artwork — which is not a painting but is pastel on board — ended up selling for $119,922,500, surpassing the previous record-holder, Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves, and Bust,” which sold for $106.5 million in 2010. Cezanne’s “The Card Players” has the honor of going for the highest price, period (meaning not at auction) — it was sold in a private sale to Qatar (yes, the country) for $250 million last year.
