Lina Condes (Ukr. Лiна Кондес; born 3 November 1988, Cherkassy city, Ukraine) is a Ukrainian artist. Condes’s work displays attributes of feminist context, minimalism, surrealism, and pop art, infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content.
Lina Condes incorporates principles of bionic architecture and design into her work. They appear simplistic and crude (the globally-known symbol of the “stick figure” implies a lack of understanding or a refusal to emulate our three-dimensional surroundings), but once finished, they communicate gestures which no machine could fully replicate. A full series these “stick figures” are engaged in motions recalling sexual intercourse; there is no indication of identity, no indication of response or stimulus from these seemingly “dead” pieces of steel. They are rendered via computer technology, but their end result is far from mechanized.
Condes picked emojis as a subject for her art for the childhood nostalgia they evoke. Her sculptures are not just symbols of happiness, but manifestos.

"The concept of energy and positive thinking is central to Condes’ work, but also her persona…Her attitude is indicative of a belief system that is gaining popularity across Generation Z: surround yourself with positive energy, and the universe will reward you with positive outcomes.” Forbes"
