About

S45

 

Studio 45 was established in 2014 by Steve Manser-Knight (AKA Uncle Steve) with a mission to promote and showcase emerging artists & creatives and give a little something to the community he grew up in.

We pride ourselves on focussing mainly on local artists, but our family has grown as we have established ourselves and we now show work from the art world at large.

Graffiti Supplies

 

We stock an interesting variety of spray paint, caps, inks, & markers to keep the streets alive...we support all forms of graffiti, street art, and everything in between, but we guess we should point out that we don't condone vandalism...What's vandalism?..We think that's up to the individual to decide...
