For 85 years, the Neva Palette Artistic Paints Plant has been producing high-quality products for professional artists and art lovers. Today we are the only Russian company with a full cycle of production of professional art materials.

The enterprise was founded in 1934 – based at the small paints and coatings factory built by Julius Friedlander, the English technologist in 1900 on the embankment of river Chernaya. On December 1, 1934, in accordance with the order of G.K. Ordzhonikidze, the Leningrad Artistic Paints Plant of the All-Russian Association of the paints and coatings industry entered the list of operating factories.

From the moment of its foundation to the present day, the Neva Palette Plant has been closely cooperating with Russian and foreign artists, listening to their expert opinions, and monitoring market trends and technological innovations. The innovative developments of our own laboratory, time-tested formulations and well-established technologies have made the paints from St. Petersburg the masterstroke of the Russian industry. At the same time, our production staff keeps the secrets of traditional recipes for making paints, and some stages of production exclusively rely on manual labor.

The Neva Palette Plant produces a wide range of products, including watercolors, oil, tempera, and acrylics paints, gouache, products for children’s crafts, as well as additional materials for painting, and decorative and applied arts. Product line choice depends on the creative task that a painter sets himself/herself.

Today, the products of the plant are well-known to both acknowledged masters and beginning painters. Paints of our White Nights and Master Class brands are in the toolkits of eminent artists of Russia, the CIS countries, the Baltics, Europe, the USA and China. The paints developed in the plant laboratory are traditionally used for restoration of masterpieces of the world paintings from the collections of the State Hermitage, the State Russian Museum and the State Tretyakov Gallery.

Restorers, painters, graphic artists, decorators, illustrators and designers unconditionally trust the paints with the Plant logo. The high reputation of the Neva Palette is the result of experience, innovations and the ability to understand the needs of an artist – who is at the heart of the world of art materials.
