Nova Color Artists Acrylic Paint

Business enterprises

Nova Color Artists Acrylic Paint was first manufactured in Culver City, California in 1965 shortly after the commercial introduction of acrylic polymer resin for paint production. Mexican immigrant Carlos Amparan developed a line of brilliantly colored fine art acrylic paint after experimenting with this relatively new water-borne emulsion. He and his brother Raoul began small-scale production of Nova Color and sold it at a low price to local artists.
