PIGMENT (pronounced as in the French, pīgmōn) is simultaneously a laboratory for exploring “expression in color and matiere*” as well as an academy, a museum, and a store combined into a comprehensive facility for creativity. Pigments, glues, brushes for calligraphy and painting – and the methods employed in creating with each. Our unique research and educational activities focus on combining the materials and techniques that give rise to expression itself. In addition to highly accomplished artists and researchers in materials and pigments, our staff includes creative directors and producers who excel in linking art and business. Together, our atelier works closely with foreign and domestic companies to provide technical support and project planning consultation.
