Different art materials

From acrylic paint to charcoal to digital, the art materials used here reflect the diversity of the stories to be told.

The different art materials

We believe that the diversity of materials used by our artists should symbolize the heterogeneity of their creative process. By bringing to the forefront modes of expression that contrast with one another, we hope to do justice to the perspectives they attempt to embed in different media.

After all, what better way to tell a good story than to have the right material to do so?


Types of paint

Paints in all its forms are the creative material of choice for many of our artists.

They are particularly fond of:

  • Acrylic paint
  • Oil paint
  • Tempera paint
  • Aerosol paint
  • Gouache
  • Watercolour
  • Wax paint (encaustic)

Embracing the use of digital technology for the benefit of art

An increasing number of artists are turning to digitization processes to carry out their projects.

Given their innovative approach, they are able to create colourful artistic projects that mix materials and media.

Organic art materials

The canvas is far from being the only way to capture a special moment in time. In fact, by transforming a natural material into an organic artistic medium, the message is no longer confined to a single mode of expression.

Rather, it allows the artist to explore and pursue a multitude of different avenues. They also lend a sense of warmth to the works they help to produce.

Our artists tend to use organic-based materials such as:

  • Wood
  • Resin
  • Wax
  • Lacquer
  • Earth

Mineral-based art materials

Mineral-based art supplies are particularly well suited for moulding, modeling and sculpting. Some of these, such as gold leaf, can also be incorporated into painted works.

Here are some of the mineral-based materials that allow our artists to bring their ideas to life:

  • Bronze
  • Sand
  • Clay
  • Ceramics
  • Gold leaf
  • Lithography
  • Glass

Drawing materials

Drawing materials are used to convey a statement that requires a fine line or intuitive contours. Although drawings are perceived as monochrome, they allow us to return to the essential: the articulation of a communication in its raw state.

The artists on our online platform make use of drawing materials like:

  • Pastel pencils
  • Markers
  • Lead pencils
  • Chalk
  • Charcoal
  • Black ink
