Traditional Art Supply Lab to Create “Present”

Over 4200 colors of pigments, more than 200 antique ink sticks, and 50 kinds of animal glues...
Painting tools support the creation activities of artists. We have gathered rare,
good quality painting tools that have been passed down for generations in Japan and Asia.
The experts of painting tools rich in knowledge will offer advices
about the features and instructions of how to use the tools.
They will bring you new techniques and infinite expressions to support the polishing of an artist’s sensibility.

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.

MUSEUM

At PIGMENT, we carry art supplies that are regarded as extremely precious throughout the world.
Our role is to inherit traditional material manufacturing methods to the next generations like “museums”.

ACADEMY

Workshops by art school professors and painting tool manufacturers are held from time to time.
We provide abundance of knowledges for a wide range of users
from people who create as a hobby to professional artists and art researchers.
