Arts, showing complementary relationship

Basquiat, Blue and yellow orange combination. Since I started to study complementary colors with these two colors, I’ve been unconsciously drawn to them.

Juan Miro, A good example of using a dominant hue and split complementary colors as accents.

Picasso, More complicated color combination, but definitely shows split complementary relationship. Simplified shapes enhance the effect of bold color combination.

And this is how the same principle is applied in graphic design of our time.
