Pantone's Colours Of The Year For 2016 Showcased With Street Art

12/09/2015 11:48 EST

Pantone announced two colours of the year for 2016, and since then, they’ve been painting the town pink and blue.

This is the first year Pantone has announced more than just one colour of the year: Rose Quartz, a dusty light pink and Serenity, a muted baby blue.


To get the word out, they teamed up with creative branding agency Crewest Studio and had three street artists create street murals with the two colours in three major U.S. cities. Their artwork is meant to show how the two colours can harmonize and complement each other.

Artist Man One graffitied this piece in Venice Beach, CA to start off the series.


Victor Quinonez spray painted this portrait in Miami using multiple colours that draw on some of Pantone’s suggested colour pairings.


And to finish it off, Pantone posted this incredible work by WERC, on display in Hell’s Kitchen, NY


Beyond the street art, Pantone has been posting plenty of inspirational pictures on its Instagram to get consumers thinking about how to use the pairing.

And brands like KitchenAid and Sephora are already sold on the duo, releasing kitchen mixers and makeup in the two colours.

We can already imagine the re-decorating possibilities!
