About Us

Pigment Lab : Purveyor of Fine Art supplies / Builder of Bespoke Canvases

Pigment Lab is the boutique art supplies store, with a strong emphasis on painting, canvas, drawing and pigments. We provide professional artists with materials that are of a higher quality, coupled with an unmatched level of product expertise and customer service.

We’ve been very considerate when selecting the brands our store carries, many of which are exclusive to Pigment Lab or are more difficult to locate in Australia. We feel that rather than overload the buyer with a big range of everywhere-available mediocre brands, we carefully selected a smaller, smarter offer that fulfils the artist’s every requirement.

Brands exclusive to Pigment Lab include Da Vinci Paint Co, Wallace Seymour, Acrylicos Vallejo, Tintoretto. Other trusted brands include Belle Arti, ArtFix, Golden, Langridge, Williamsburg, Schmincke, Magnani, Hahnemuehle, St Cuthberts Mill, Da Vinci Brushes and Omega.

Our store is on Enmore Road, Newtown, in the heart of a vibrant arts community in Sydney.

Bespoke Canvases

Our stretched canvases are the tautest, most beautifully crafted and reliably square on the market.

Choose the exact size of canvas you require, select the perfect surface texture and choose between museum quality reforested Australian pine or Western Red Cedar stretcher bars in a variety of depths.

All our bespoke canvases come with the appropriate cross bars, expandable corners and clean, staple-free edges.
