Pantone – More than Just Colour

Pantone is the leading colour matching system in the creative industry with colours available across a range of inks, coloured paint, fabric and plastics.

Most creatives use the Pantone Matching System to ensure accurate colour reproduction, but British artist Nick Smith has found a new purpose for those small swatches.

He has recreated classic paintings from Vincent Van Gogh, Warhol and René Magritte. Looking up close you will only see the colour swatches, but from afar you’ll see a pixel-art version of the original painting.

These works form part of his newest exhibition Psycolourgy, which is open until February 21st at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery in London.
