Every December, we look forward to Pantone’s ongoing Color of the Year (COTY) announcement, an initiative dating back to 2000. Each hue decided upon considers various global factors and is meant to encompass what the overall feeling of the coming year may be.
In his BIG COLOR art print series, Nate Nettleton pairs each Color of the Year selection with its exact opposite on the color wheel in a radial gradient. The prints take into consideration the power of color, how we associate with it, and the influence that takes place within the world of color itself – in an effort to portray endless possibilities.
Nettleton’s COTY print series begins with 2000’s Cerulean and ends with 2024’s Peach Fuzz. The edition number of each print correlates to the release year. For example, 2000 is edition one, since it marks the first color of the year, 2001 is edition two, and so on.
