The Power of Colours I Treat Yourself for Valentine's

Aktualisiert: Aug 10

COLOUR IS A POWER WHICH DIRECTLY INFLUENCES THE SOUL.

Wassily Kandinsky


Colours have a tremendous positive impact on our wellbeing.


The first known theory of colour was developed by Aristotle (384BC-322BC), who believed it was sent by God from heaven through celestial rays of light. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) preferred to meditate in a lavender or purple-coloured light, it is said.

In 1666, English scientist Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) discovered that when

pure white light passes through a prism, it separates into all of the visible colours. He organized his findings in a colour wheel showing the three "primary colours" separated by the three "secondary colours".

In the 1700’s Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) suggested in his “A Theory of Colour”, that colour and light have subjective and emotional aspects.

How colours affect us


Yellow, red and blue are known as “Primary” colours.

  • Yellow: Optimistic and youthful

  • Red: Energetic

  • Blue: Trustworthy and sense of security

Green, orange and purple are known as “Secondary” colours.

  • Green: Wealth and calmness

  • Orange: Appetite stimulant and creativity booster

Three other popular message-driven colours are black, white and pink.

  • Black: Powerful and glamorous

  • White: Associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity

  • Pink: Romantic and feminine.

Discover the artworks the artists have produced while in Lockdown and enjoy the colours.
