Paint Chips

Shawn Huckins, a Denver based artist, mimics the exact proportions, font, layout and hues of paint cards found at every home improvement store. His Paint Chip Series explores color choices and their meaning in our everyday lives. It just goes to show how people can find inspiration and beauty in the most mundane items.

    I wonder how you always found these cool things that look so fresh and new. Anyway this is a great idea, I love paint cards, and the hyper-realist illustrations add a new life to them!

  13. I love the one in blue hues. I’m sure it’s inspired by David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash.
