ICONIC SINCE 1983
Launched in the early 80s, the POSCA paint marker was an immediate success among the artistic communities arising from urban cultures, and especially the Graffiti community.
Graffiti artists very quickly adopted the marker, which met all their needs: convenient and efficient, an ideal way of always having paint in your pocket when you want to paint in the street and share your creation with the public. They gave it real popularity, which gradually spread beyond the urban space. Studio artists began to go outside and try their hands at street art, while graffiti artists started working on canvas. These exchanges between one artistic community and another are the source of POSCA’s universal credibility, which has continued to win over new users ever since.
From Street Art to Fine Art via Illustration, Graffiti, Portraits and all forms of Customisation, POSCA now drives artistic momentum among all creators in all media.
For temporary or permanent projects, POSCA offers a universal, accessible language that brings artists and amateurs of all ages together around the same passion – creation!
POSCA, THE CREATIVE TOOL WITH NO LIMITS!
The POSCA range includes no fewer than eight sizes and five different tip shapes. Made either of acrylic or plastic, they are all ultra-hardwearing and perfectly suited to their respective uses.
The very high quality of the materials used guarantees a stroke that is always perfectly smooth. The line is regular, the action is unique and the pleasure of creating with POSCA is unparalleled.
MITSUBISHI PENCIL has developed a unique valve mechanism that guarantees a perfect seal for the marker and conserves the paint over time.
The same mechanism is used to prime the POSCA for use and to re-saturate the tip as often as necessary during creation.
Very rich in pigments, POSCA paint provides results of incomparable density.
Its unique water-based formulation delivers bright, matte, opaque colours that withstand the passage of time. It has no odour.
Layerable, mixable, water-soluble, weather-resistant… no fewer than 55 colours (some with glitter, metallic or fluorescent) offer unlimited creative possibilities.
To ensure a consistent texture from beginning to end, a little ball is placed inside the marker to mix the ingredients of the POSCA paint.
Just shake the marker energetically (with the cap on), and you will hear its characteristic, sought-after clicking!
From near or far, POSCA is instantly recognisable. Its deep black body, the five coloured letters of its logo (three primary and one secondary) and the UNI signature are inimitable. Sized differently based on the tip of the marker, the body shape enables an easy, comfortable grip
The sealed cap ensures a long life for the marker. Conveniently, its colour (or the colour of the pocket tab, depending on the model) shows the colour of the paint. The caps of a handful of POSCA markers on a table are a visual treat and the promise of a highly colourful creation!
