Brett Whiteley Studio

Brett Whiteley Studio, Surry Hills, Sydney
"This gallery offers glimpses into the private world of one of Australia’s most renowned artists, Brett Whiteley, who lived and worked in Surry Hills until his death in 1992. It’s in this old warehouse, full of personal memorabilia belonging to someone who was a bit of an eccentric, whose portraits are personal and emotive.” 2 Raper St., 61/(0) 2-9225-1881, brettwhiteley.org —Luke Nguyen

Visit the studio of an Australian icon
Brett Whiteley is one of Australia's most storied artists. His art can be seen in gallery collections around the world, but nothing compares to a visit to his former studio space. In addition to the explosively creative art, see the many photographs, poems, and memorabilia that reflect his life with his muse and partner, Wendy.

Whiteley's Legacy
An inspiring afternoon spent with Wendy Whiteley at the studio/home of her late husband and famed artist, Brett Whiteley. From her colorful life tales, it's no wonder Wendy was a muse for Brett's work.

Now operated by the Art Gallery of Northwales, the Whiteley's studio is open to the public on weekends.

Brett Whiteley Studio

Immerse yourself in the life and art of one of Australia's most acclaimed painters at this intimate, atmospheric gallery, the former home and studio of Brett Whiteley. The studio holds a treasure trove of the artist's ephemera: unfinished paintings, art equipment, collections of reference books and a graffiti wall covered with quotes and images. The living area, meanwhile, is a fascinating memorabilia-fest of photographs, postcards, furniture, records and sketchbooks. The gallery also mounts changing exhibitions of works on loan from the Whiteley Estate, Art Gallery of New South Wales and private collections.
