Minneapolis-based designer David Dschwen has a genius idea – what if the Pantone color system was made entirely of foods that go well together? From that unique vision comes ‘Food Art Pairings’, a paint chip series that highlights the color-matching nature of common pairs of everyday food items like peanut butter and jelly, hot cocoa and marshmallows, salt and pepper, macaroni and cheese, peas and carrots and more.
These pictures are deceptively simple in that it must have taken meticulous crafting to style, arrange and photograph the food items in Pantone-style squares. It’s the minimalist execution that makes the tasty colors pop out wonderfully. The colorful art combinations are available as signed 12″x12″ prints right here.
