In today's information-centric society, digitalization is progressing even in artistic expression, enabling us to visualize things that we may never have seen or experienced before.
At the same time, there remain many highly refined art materials manufactured using methods developed over great lengths of time, by craftsmen who have engaged in a dialogue with and found ingenious uses for their raw materials.
There is meaning behind the form each of these materials takes, and the diversity and unpredictability that arise from the uniquely analog variations in their color and texture are expressed through their use.
For many years, the individuality and feel of art materials like these have continued to inspire artists.
Our goal in launching PIGMENT is to pass down and preserve the techniques these "things" generate, regardless of their age.
A modern design constructed using organic curved surfaces inspired by bamboo blinds
by the Japanese and world renowned architect, Kengo Kuma.
The painting tools on display richly light up the room.
The bamboo stretches from the roof to the eaves,
and the open space creates a sense of unity with the outdoors that enriches your imaginations just by visiting.
At PIGMENT, we carry art supplies that, around the world, are considered extremely rare.
We take on the role of a museum, displaying these traditional materials and passing them on to the next generation.
