rozelle studios

rozellstudios was established in 1990 with seven artists who had the desire to create a working environment to practice their craft and together develop their practices. As the studio evolved its Director, Rogerio Blanc-Ramos, saw the need to provide more working space at the lowest possible cost and to as many artists as it was financially possible. Over time the studios grew to house 21 artists and by 1996 extended to accommodate 32 artists. However the demand for space increased and it was necessary to move into new premises.


Wendy Arnold and John McRae joined forces with Rogerio and together went on to set up the new premises.


one+2 Rozelle moved to its present premises at 483 Balmain Road, Lilyfield. There are now 50 artists working in and sharing this warehouse space.
