We are obsessed with this collection by Chiseled Hair Salon (@chiseledhair), titled Spectrum. The artist, Chung-Yang “Yoshi” Su (@yoshisumelbourne) says the inspiration comes from how colour is seen and used in our lives.
”My collection Spectrum is my representation of the interaction between colour, our surroundings and the individual, shaping and creating who we are.
Designers use colours to give feeling to their creations whether it be a building or clothing, and the colour is used to elicit a response in individuals. When it resonates with an individual, we take this creating and make it a part of our own personality. These could be things that are neutral for a non-offensive living space to a dark sharply designed suit to project a feeling of power.
In Spectrum, colour is used in representing people’s personalities; for instance a person with a bubbly and outgoing personality would normally be represented by bright vibrant colours that are seen as warming, perhaps a bright yellow. Whereas someone who is more introverted or reclusive is often represented by cooler more solemn colours, perhaps a darker blue.”
A really interesting perspective and a stunning result; the endless possibilities of colour…
