“I’ve come up with a novel way of looking at colour schemes. The pie charts are designed to be visually pleasing but also function as a colour trend visualisation tool. They represent famous paintings, portraying the five most prominent colours in each as a percentage. Using software to analyse images means the only creative decisions I made creating the impressionist pie charts is the shape of the chart and the number of colours it contains. The less arbitrary design choices the better. Information is beautiful.” - Artist, Arthur Buxton, 2011.
