Our History

The Kunst name is synonymous with painting in Marin County.



Community is more than just a word at Kunst Painting. To help their neighbors and customers, Kunst Painting contributes countless hours, of labor and financial assistance to a variety of local entities.  John, Mike, and Tom serve on non-profit boards such as The Down Syndrome Association North Bay, Miracle League North Bay, Bombers Baseball, and Una-Vida.  From the beginning, Bob Kunst held himself and other local business leaders to high standards by serving as President of the Marin Builders Association (MBA) and Painting and Decoration Contractors of America (PDCA). Like Bob, Grandson-John Busick is following in his footsteps, serving as President of the Marin Builders Association and sitting on the National Board for PDCA.
