Following on from news of Anish Kapoor buying exclusive rights for a vey black black. Multimedia artist, Solimán López has licensed a digital blue based on Yves Klein’s Internatinal Blue Klein (IBK).
In 1962, the artist Yves Klein registered his own colour called International Blue Klein (IBK). The colour tone was obtained by manipulating the ultramarine blue extracted from the lapis lazuli stone with certain binders to create a deep velvety blue.
Solimán López has taken the IBK tone and ‘mixed’ it with Hexadecimal tones to create hexadecimal # 002fa7 tone.
He has registered this web colour and has created a series of artworks under the title Hexel Klein Project.
