The search for the perfect colour
Purity taken to the extreme.
Gianni Maimeri, as an artist and paint manufacturer, followed, with ambition and far-sightedness, the essential nature of colour, made up of the simple formula "oil + pigment and nothing else" to create the perfect ratio between the ingredients of the oil paint.
For over 20 years, Maimeri Puro has embodied experience and tradition, capturing their essence. The search has never ceased, Maimeri Puro today has evolved to achieve all round perfection.
83 pure colours, an infinite number of sharp and clear mixes
Maimeri Puro is made entirely from just one pigment
in the maximum possible concentration. From which mixes can be made which are
impeccable with sharp and brilliant hues and clean undertones. Colours born to be harmoniously mixed to create shades with an incredible chromatic balance and extraordinary brightness.
Impeccable and intense changes in shade are the result of the purity
of the materials which live and breathe in a tube of this oil paint.
Single-pigment colours, from the intuition to the production
of Industria Maimeri
Gianni Maimeri's original intuition for many years remained just an industrial dream
but the perseverance of his descendants,
like his son Leone, led to the realization of all that
which was once was considered an unattainable goal.
