Golden Artist Colors, Inc. began in June of 1980 in a 900 square foot, renovated barn. Sam, his wife Adele, son Mark and daughter-in-law Barbara Golden along with partner Chuck Kelly, founded a new company that would embody Sam's dedication to professional artists, work Sam described as simply "making tools for artists."
The business began to succeed with very loyal support the product was gaining from professional artists. In 1985, the addition of a factory to the original cow barn gave the company 6,200 square feet of space. As the building grew, so did product lines. The original Heavy Body and Iridescent Acrylics grew to include Fluid, Matte and Interference Acrylics.Golden Acrylic Paints are considered the best acrylic paints in the world today. They set the standard after Liqutex developed acrylic paint after the second world war. We stock the full of Golden because we wish to offer our customers the choices they want when they choose Golden.
