From Brick Red to Blush, the magic of Crayola crayons lies in their color names. While teaching to children a wide array of color, the utensils also teach us some of our first vocabulary words: I learned what a Flamingo was from a crayon! As we grow up, we can lose the sense of wonder brought on by a fresh box of Crayola crayons; unless we live in Pleasantville, the joy the fact of color often escapes us.

All we really need to make art is color, and that’s just what’s expressed in Dawn Kim and Daniel Seung Lee brilliant series of photographs titled Crayola Theory. Positioning everyday objects over a solid backdrop of their namesake crayon color, they create minimalist gems that are both elegant and whimsical. Take a look down memory lane...
