Karl Gerstner, born Basel 1930, has devoted himself, for 50 years, to the study of colour. At 22 he became a freelance designer and 7 years later founded his own advertising studio GGK. In 1986 he published his book, The Forms of Colour, where examined the complex interaction between colour and form and developed his own system: ‘The Colour Form Model.’ The manipulation of colour’s tonal and chromatic scales have dominated his work in two and three dimensions. The compositions are vibrant, geometric and perfectly executed.
