Viva Magenta, Pantone’s 2023 colour choice tends to dictate colour trends in art design and interior decors using bright and bold hues to complement the purplish pink colour. It’s been quite noticeable in art galleries that expressive artworks rendered with bright and vibrant colours are highly in demand.

Mainly because they are artworks that can brighten up an otherwise lack-lustre space. It creates an uplifting effect, energizing the mood and minds of people who work or have business in the work area.

What Exactly is Viva Magenta?

Pantone describes the bright and vibrant magenta as a pinkish-purple color. It’s regarded as a synthetic color because the hue rarely occurs  naturally. It’s actually a mix of red and blue pigments in equal parts.
