about the project

Seeing Yves Klein's “IKB 3, Monochrome bleu” painting at the Centre Pompidou in Paris was an unforgettable moment, time, and place in my life. The blue was eerie, alluring, and ethereal. Immediately, I was inspired and enamored by him and his work. I dedicated a collection of minimal graphic designs to him and his blue, International Klein Blue (IKB).

The project led to conception of the Yves Klein Museum, a museum for modern art and design. The opening exhibit would be "Dans Le Blue."

my role

I extensively researched and studied Yves Klein's work and philosophies. I created designs that were displayed digitally in a college art gallery exhibit.

Yves is known and celebrated for International Klein Blue (IKB), a color he invented in 1961, and his monochromes. Self-identified as “the painter of space,” he sought to achieve a spirit of immateriality through pure color, primarily IKB. He was fascinated by mystical ideas, by notions of the infinite, the indefinable, the absolute. At the age of nineteen, he reported that he looked up at the sky and realized the infinite, immaterial space surrounding the universe.

"BLUE HAS NO DIMENSIONS, IT IS BEYOND DIMENSIONS..."
