The internationally acclaimed Allilon Education Art Team has launched Reverie – a beautiful and dynamic colour collection inspired by the animal portraits of artist, Emily Tan. Known for creating organic abstractions that create patterns in a non-representational way, Tan inspired the team to create an expressive colour collection. Boasting dramatic shapes with colour that was literally thrown onto the hair in the style of the artist’s work, the collection has a dreamlike, ethereal quality. Colour Director Madeleine Murphy played a major role in developing this collection, and using inspiration from Emily’s individual portraits, created colour palettes that would turn her work into real life by using hair as a canvas; the textures, colours, and techniques used to layer colour upon colour. Using true to life tones with a mix of brighter shades, colour is almost unnoticeable until up close.
