Warm colours

Through a beautiful combination of colours, artists can add warm tones to their colour palette.

The distinction between 'warm' or 'cold' colours appeared at the end of the 18th century, and is often used in the field of graphic art. The expressions refer to whether a tone is closer to orange or blue, while the notion of warmth comes from the impression that the mixture of colours evokes in the viewer.

The celebrated Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky believed that artists should use form and colour to both express their own emotions and provoke them in the viewer. As the pioneer of abstract art, Kandinsky established a connection between shapes and colours. For him, a colour's most intense warmth came from yellow, the 'earth colour'.

Indeed, whether a painting depicts the midday sun or a fiery sunset, yellow fields of wheat or ochre-coloured houses, all these colours warm both our hearts and interiors

These artists, chosen by Artsper, use warm colours to portray both humorous and naturalistic subjects. Here, colour is more important and powerful than ever: from yellow to red, these bright, summery colours transport us to warmer plains. Why not capture a little sunlight to keep in your home all year round?

Street artist Okuda (Oscar San Miguel) has transformed streets around the world with his colourful geometric masterpieces. His works are bursting with vitality and colour. His geometrical patterns, daubed across greying urban architecture, encourage positivity and lift spirits. The artist's work aims to show the meaning of life and its contradictions. He wants to make us reflect on the conflicts between modernism and humanity's origins, as well as war and violence.

As for Nicolas Dubreuille, his incredibly personal, playful and imaginative work is firmly rooted in the history of art. With intertwined matrix-like, geometric and totemic shapes, his creations are evocative of figures, animals or even architecture. Nicolas Dubreuille employs bright, vivid and warm colours to give even more depth to his works.

Still wondering which work should decorate your living room or master bedroom? Look no further! To visually enhance and revitalise even the most immaculate walls, dare to use colour!
