About Acrylicos Vallejo


The most valued asset of Vallejo is their experience and knowledge accumulated in the eleboration of artist colors over the last 45 years!

The Vallejo Company was established in 1965, in New Jersey, U.S.A. In the first years the company specialized in the manufacture of Film Color, waterbased acrylic colors for animated films (cartoons). In 1969 the company moved to Spain! 

In 1972 Amadeo Vallejo developed Acrylic Artist Color, the first acrylic for fine arts manufactured in Spain, and one of the first acrylic colors for artists produced in Europe.

In the year 1981, following suggestions by professors of the Fine Arts University of Barcelona, Vallejo presented Acrylic Studio- a range of high quality acrylic colors for fine arts  at a reduced and unified price. With this range, a result of the most careful selection of permanent artist pigments, avoiding the most expensive colors, such as cadmiums and cobalts, Vallejo created the line of colors which was to become a benchmark for the industry and the beginning of  a new period of expansion for Acrylicos Vallejo. 

Acrylicos Vallejo still is a family company, and Amadeo Vallejo continues to supervise the development of new products, supported now by a technical department dedicated to investigation and development. The testing of new products and formulations in the chemical industry is a constant process and Vallejo takes pride in the constant aim to improve the quality and presentation of the  colors and to continue offering products with exceptional quality to all artists.

The AV colors comply with all the security and environment regulations in force in the European Common Market and the United States. More information is available in the (MSDS) security sheets of our web page or can be requested at info@acrylicosvallejo.com.
