Radiant Orchid was named color of the year 2014 by Panton. I have noticed it appeared a lot in the paintings of Zhao Wou-Ki.
Zhao Wou-Ki merged his classical training in Chinese calligraphy with his inspiration from Paul Klee, Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse. He moved to Paris in 1948, embarking on a lengthy career that ended with his death at 93 last year.
