Sydney's best kept secret

The Brett Whiteley Studio was the workplace and home of Australian artist, Brett Whiteley (1939‑92).

The artist bought the former warehouse in 1985 and converted it into a studio and exhibition space. He lived there from 1988 to 1992, the year he died in Thirroul.

The visitor is offered the unique opportunity to experience the atmosphere of the space - the studio with his unfinished paintings, art equipment and collections of reference books, and the graffiti wall covered with quotes and images.

The living area has memorabilia such as photographs, objects, postcards, furniture, his music collection and sketchbooks. The gallery has changing exhibitions of the artist's works: paintings, drawings, sculpture and graphics borrowed from the Whiteley Estate, Art Gallery of New South Wales and private collections.

There is a small gallery shop with postcards, posters and other merchandise for sale. There is no café at the Studio, however visitors are welcome to return on the day after refreshing at the numerous cafés and restaurants close by.
