LA-based artist esai ramirez imagines a vibrant world where crayon company crayola and matching system pantone collide, offering limited edition box sets to encourage creatives to play with color. ramirez considers the possibility of collaborations with famous artists based on the color schemes found in their most famous paintings and works. examples include damien hirst’s archetypal palette comprising aquamarine silicone blues, josef albers’ sunset hues found in ‘homage to the square: glow’; a vibrant spectrum of hues found throughout jen stark’s paper murals; and yves klein’s signature saturated blue hue.
