Since 1964 Derivan Matisse has been committed to providing the arts community with the finest quality artist acrylic colours and mediums. The founders of Derivan Matisse had a vision "to make available to artists worldwide a premium paint, whilst remaining "environmentally and socially responsible". This was to be achieved while still maintaining the quality and personal touch that only a family company can provide. Derivan Matisse has consequently grown from a tiny affair (operating out of stables in Sydney's inner city) to the multinational operation that it is today. The Matisse range of premium acrylics and mediums are all made to the highest standards to ensure brilliant and pure results.
