The team behind KAMA PIGMENTS

Vincent Deshaies
Vincent Deshaies
president / founder
vince@kamapigment.com

In 1994, he completed a college diploma in fine arts with honours. Subsequently, he undertook training under the guidance of Terrance DePietro where he learned traditional techniques and uses of pigments. He then moved to Montreal and started a business that offers an alternative for artists when buying their materials: Kama pigments.

At the same time, he studied science and kept on painting by making his own paints, mediums and varnishes.

In the recent years, Vincent Deshaies has focused in Research and Development, particularly in expanding the line of extra fine oil paint. Both a devoted father and formidable marathoner, Vincent Deshaies believes in a business model where honesty and generosity are rewarded with customer’s loyalty.
