Artist’s Studio 106 is an independently run artist's collective consisting of artist studios and a gallery.


Set up in 1996, it is home to a range of artists, filmmakers and writers hailing from diverse cultural backgrounds and working across a wide multitude of mediums - including Illustration, sculpture, painting, digital art, mixed media, poetry and fi­­lm. 


17 separately partioned studios currently host around 23 artists, and the management of the space is controlled by a volunteer committee. Some artists are well established and have exhibited widely and been recogrnised with an array of awards, others are just emerging or are happy to consider themselves hobby artists. 


Situated in the heart of St Kilda in the City of Port Phillip, just next to Mirka Lane and the Woodfrog Bakery. Artist's Studio 106 is not affiliated with the many other 'Studio 106's around the world; we are called 106 simply because we're located at 106 Barkly Street.


A common gallery space is regularly used for solo and group exhibitions and is available for external hire to local artists, groups and community organisations. The gallery measures approximately 5m x 6m and is well lit. It can also be used for meetings and workshops, as a photographic space or small (not really sound-proof) video studio. We even have photogrpahers and filmmakers on site with lights, back drops and a green screen if you need assistance. 


Please email us with your enquiry via the Contact page.


If you're an artist who is interested in leasing either the gallery or a studio space, please also let us know! We regularly advertise on Creative Spaces Melbourne whenever studios become agailable, so be sure to keep your eye out there. 


Artist's Studio 106 is grateful for assistance over the years from the City of Port Phillip and for the ongoing support it receives from the Elwood St Kilda Neigbourhood Learning Centre.


Our current logo 'Dog in a Teacup' was designed for the studio by resident artist Tamar Dolev in 2015.
