Our story

Our story begins...

…with a little girl’s dream, passioned for beauty and painting, to become an artist.

The little girl, Elli, grew up and studied the Academy of Fine Arts, focusing especially on painting and fashion.

While painting in her studio, she realized the difficulty and the huge amount of time needed to buy high quality art supplies, and so, the idea of an art supply store came.

She met Calin, a doctor passioned by IT and business and they become partners in business and life. And so, the Art Paint Shop was born with one clear mission: to allow creative expression for everyone, by providing quick access to the best art supplies from the best brands and at best prices.

Today, we praise you for the exciting journey of trust and style. By closely listening and embracing your desires, it is a pleasure to invite you to your new online shopping destination.

We proudly dedicate ourselves to shaping the world of art supplies, by facilitating quick accesss for artists to the best art supplies, from best manufacturers at the best prices. For this reason, partners with esteemed brands, such as Royal Talens, Kreul, Royal & Langnickel, Da Vinci, Pentart, Standardgraph and many more, who set high standards in crafting various art supplies, using premium materials.

Our Philosophy

We believe the beauty brings out the best in everyone. It has the power to stimulate mind, body and soul and should therefore be enabled all over the world.

Dostoevsky said “beauty will save the world”. Beauty is a fundamental category of aesthetics that reflects man’s ability to feel emotion in front of works of art, phenomena and objects of nature. Beauty is one of the fundamental features of all existence, a value that stands with dignity and full justification along with truth and good, together forming human aspirations for a perfect life, for peace and quiet. The beauty of the world comes from the order and harmony of the universe, man being part of them. It exerts a real fascination on man, even if it sometimes seems cold and repulsive. Beauty can appear, as a simple sparkle, like a firework, but it can accumulate a lot of energy that makes you vibrate. Our whole life is an alternation between beautiful and ugly, between light and shadow, between dream and reality.

Our belief

Mankind can give up many, but not beauty. It is indispensable because without beauty there would be nothing left to do in this world. The perfection of forms ennobles truth and good.

Outer beauty is fragile: ” forma bonum fragile est ” – “beauty is a fragile gift” (Ovid). The inner one is eternal. We can even speak of an aesthetic of human nature, which surpasses both in duration and in intensity the aesthetics of the figure or that of clothing. Appearances are often misleading. It is necessary for the eyes of the mind to see beyond appearances, where the essence, vitality and permanence are found, and where only the tried glances can see all the facets of reality.
