Local Sydney artists you can meet in person at The Rocks
When you make a purchase, you’ll be supporting a Sydney local at a time when they need it most.
To get you started, here are 8 local artists in the Rocks that you can meet in person as soon as the lockdown’s over.
Matt Pearson Photography
His sense of adventure has served him well and he’s quickly gained an international following, with collectors in every corner of the world. You can shop Matt’s selection in person at his store in The Rocks once the lockdown’s over, or jump onto his online store and get art delivered.
Popping one of these beauties on the wall in your office might not be as good as adopting a real otter, but it’s the next best thing!
Drop into Ken’s gallery in the Rocks and you might be lucky enough to meet the man himself.
You can experience Charle’s collection at Billich Gallery in a beautiful heritage building in the heart of the Rocks.

Max Mendez and Kerry Findley are a globetrotting couple who’ve worked for design agencies in England, Spain, America, Singapore and Australia. Not long ago they decided to follow their passions in illustration and design, leave the corporate world and start their own business. The result is Squidinki - a brand that uses everyday products as canvases for Max’s whimsical, humorous hand drawn illustration. Their shop in The Rocks has quickly become a local favourite, selling everything from fine art prints to illustrated tea towels and keep cups.
Art Aid are a Sydney art pop up selling limited edition works from a selection of the world’s most forward thinking artists such as David Meggs, Billy Zammit, E.L.K, Justine McAllister and more.
Not only do they support local artists - they also support good causes all over the world. One third of all profits from the pop up go toward one of 12 worthy charities including the Asylum Seekers Centre and Doctors Without Borders.
