Hello everyone! Chloé from Plenty of Colour here and I am honoured to be writing a guest post for Follow the Colours. Carol is my true colour soul mate!
I love art installations and particularly like when they appear on the street and interact with every day life. Since I first saw the sketches a few months ago, I have been eagerly anticipating artist Jessica Stockholder‘s ‘Color Jam‘ installation in Chicago. The busy intersection of State and Adams Streets is wrapped in 76,000 square feet of tangerine-red, bright sky blue and leaf green vinyl as Jessica envisioned a ‘three-dimensional painting’ being applied to the four corner space.
The bold colour creeps delightfully up lamp posts and cement edges and I love the life brought to the cityscape by these gorgeous slices of hue (especially when urban colour is so often advertisements and logos). I think more cities should feature bright hues splashing up buildings and bursting out of doorways, don’t you think? It’s incredible how a plain street becomes beautiful art with a little colour….
