Emoji as Art

I have been looking again at the images in the http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~ngo/emoji_installation_at_MoMA.htm web page with a view to trying to write more about the installation.

I noticed that, although the images of the emoji are in colour, none of the glyphs has more than one colour used within it.

So I am wondering whether there could be a second installation about emoji with a name such as the following.

Inbox 2: Emoji with more than one colour in each glyph

Today, emoji often, even usually, each have more than one colour in the glyph.

So I am wondering when did emoji with more than one colour in them first come into use.

I have tried to find an answer but have not yet found one.

Does anyone know please?

Here is a link to a web page that has some pictures of the emoji installation at the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA, in New York, the pictures shown at one quarter of the size of the original pictures that were kindly supplied by MoMA. Thank you to MoMA for the pictures.
