Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that saying holds true in the history of Williamsburg Oil Colors. During the mid 1980’s, Carl Plansky started making oil paints for himself and his artist friends in his Williamsburg, Brooklyn neighborhood in New York City. Although he did not set out to create a business, Planksy’s paints were so popular he had no choice but to expend into a larger operation. He moved the operation to Oneonta, NY as the company continued to grow. Carl searched for pigments and oils from around the globe so he could provide his customers with the finest and most unique art materials available. It is this attention to detail and passion for his product that made Carl Plansky’s beloved Williamsburg Oil Colors a household name in the art field.
