This study was carried out to determine the isolates of fungi types associated with in-can degradation of  paint. Thirty-six paint made up of water based and emulsion in equal numbers obtained from various location in the southwest Nigeria were  investigated by conventional biochemical cultivation on selective medium. Growth of different fungi isolates were obtained in varied proportions in both water based paint and emulsion paint. Rhizopus and Aspergillus spp were predominant in this study while other fungi; Absidia,  Monilia, Alternaria, Fusarium and Penicillium spp  were also recorded in varied density.
