Traditionally, LEGO pieces have stayed within the color confines of red, blue, yellow, and black. More recently, the toy brand has been branching into more exciting colors like bright green and neon yellow. Artist Jeremy Moody spent over a year searching for pieces in every color he could find. The result is a well organized rainbow of 182 different bricks. There is a small placard under each piece with the name of the color. Some color names are officially used by LEGO—like Transparent Red and Dark Curry—while others Moody had to name himself. For more satisfyingly organized LEGO charts, Brick Colorstream is a great reference.
