"The Chilli Rooms is a fantastic place of good fun where we get together as friends and colleagues to bring our artistic collaborations, gigs, creations, ideas, stupidity, intellect and passion to life - we love it!"
"The Pinski series is the most serious kind of art that I know, lifts the spirits and leaves you better for having partaken. What's more serious than feeling better? Great art for grown-ups!"

"Visit the Source."
Truman Hoyle Lawyers and Chilli Rooms Patron
Many places enjoy exhibiting art - hotels, galleries, restaurants, museums.
One place glows as the origin, a studio-gallery. As the source, the studio naturally catapults to the forefront of showcasing art.
For the collector, a well-run studio-gallery is a hot prospect. To engage with good provenance begun at the source. To see great art. To enjoy a Moet and good company.
A studio-gallery is as authentic as it gets. In any country the studio is the HQ of art, and all good studio-galleries are loved like a teddy bear. As all serious art critics acknowledge, the best art is exhibited, comparable to anywhere.
Taken by The Chilli Rooms parties, New Yorker Les Margulis: "A remarkable 21st century salon, heck of a lot of fun meeting great people."
"The most vibrant studio in Australia today, parties and viewings are the best."
Finance Director UXC Limited and Chilli Rooms Patron
Launched with fanfare by one of Australia's finest actors William Zappa as a special space for fun evenings in a fabulous art studio atmosphere.
Moet flows along with fine whites and reds. Leg hams are juicy and caramel-coloured. The aroma of lashings of truffle mustard fills the air.
Near Sydney University, it hosts guest speakers from the wider world beyond the visual arts: corporate, business, media, environment, science, film, education and design.
Anchored by an art show, a Christmas party or a patron's birthday party, the Chilli Rooms evenings are always light and bright.
The Chilli Rooms has now been located in the current building for eight years, moving successfully into the larger space three years ago. The initiative of painter Wayne Ashton, it is the sixth in a long line of productive studios over 22 years that have together distilled into The Chilli Rooms.
"Wayne's depth of experience with studios has absolutely landed beautifully in this space. Touches of panache make it hum, like the complimentary limo service. And the truffle mustard at the parties. And the fine wines."
Getting there is quick: over Sydney Harbour on Anzac Bridge and 5 minutes along historic Johnston Street. The building is on a sunlit, breezy ridge.
