Art and Colour Inspiration

I thought I would share with you one of our many colour inspiration sources. Coming from a screen print background I am a huge fan of Bridget Riley’s graphic geometric works (although her’s are mind bendingly painted by hand and eye). To see these in their full size is to get sucked into their mind blowing vortex of colour combinations/ratios. Art and fashion often go hand in hand, but what makes arts use of colour exciting is that it has no boundaries and is totally subjective. What fashion can take from this is endless.

What we try and visualise here is how do different ratios of colour work with each other. Colour evokes many feeling and emotions, and putting together combinations of colour adds a depth of suprise for the audience.
