Visual language: Wes Andeerson colour palette

Artist and Wes Anderson enthusiast Hamish Robertson says, “Anderson’s colour palettes are integral to his cinematic ‘world-building’. His eye for art direction and fantastic attention to detail creates the appropriate space and tone for his characters to exist in – and for the viewer to lose themselves in. They ultimately become their own visual language, the way character themes are elaborated in cinematic scores, allowing an immersive visual experience whether the sound is on or not.” (source)

“The hazy-hued lens through which we peer into
the director’s unique world has a retro quality
that cast his films in a nostalgia for a time
that could have been”

“Anderson’s colour palettes are integral
to his cinematic ‘world-building’.”
