Visit the Brett Whiteley Studio in 3D
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 1987 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 from the Brett Whiteley Studio, Art Gallery of New South Wales and private collections.
