Supporting Painting at the Seawall Museum in Ishinomaki

Kansai Paint provides paint to support the Seawall Museum, an art project intended to paint a massive sea wall measuring up to 10 meters high and about 3.5 kilometers long built following the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
The Seawall Museum project seeks to build a new kind of relationship between people and the sea wall, by creating, alongside local residents and supporters from across Japan, a new landscape to make up for sea views lost from the construction of the sea wall, with each mural depicting local scenes or cultural messages. Having positioned improvement in quality of life (QOL) as a materiality item, Kansai Paint will actively contribute to society through its products and services to move society closer to sustainability.
