I was first introduced to Shawn Huckins after seeing the Paint Chip Series, featured on The Jealous Curator (great art blog). 

The Paint Chip Series features several large canvases painted to resemble various color swatches you'd pick up at Home Depot or Sherwin Williams before covering your living room in "Pacific Sea Teal." Each "chip" also incorporates some mundane image drawn from the everyday—a Walmart employee pushing shopping carts across a "Sweet Corn" landscape; cars sinking into a "Honey Beige" flood.
