After re-locating to 5A Winn Lane in July 2018, the in-store studio now boasts a giant, risen, loft style studio dedicated exclusively to the featured artist throughout their stay. 


For the period of allocated time, the artist will take over The Culprit Club upstairs loft studio utilising it exclusively as a working office/creative studio. The Culprit Club store and gallery continue to function downstairs throughout the day, while the artist works in the studio. This also allows for customers, clients and audiences to connect with the artists while they are active in the space. 

The artist will occupy the space at their leisure Tuesday – Sunday each week for the duration of their residency throughout the following hours:

TUE / WED: 10am - 5pm
THU / FRIDAY: 10am - 8pm
SAT / SUN: 10am - 6pm

Artists must commit to a minimum 4 week stay to qualify for consideration.

As both an in store and live-in resident, MUCHOS became part of the family the second he arrived on our door from his humble hometown, Adelaide in May this year. He shared our hearts and our homes throughout his time spent with us preparing for his now SOLD OUT debut exhibition, 'STACKED'. In addition to the in-store prep for his solo show, Muchos worked on a number of residency projects in collaboration with The Culprit Club including an Ironlak Studio Video, Winn Lane mural, Abandoned warehouse mural a Byron Bay mural and an application for VANS Custom Culture Competition which saw him become a national finalist!

Having found a large amount of commercial success in Brisbane, Muchos now continues to work on projects with us remotely. We spend many hours trying to convince him to come back to us, and are hoping to one day make him a permanent part of the furniture within Club walls.


Having worked with JOE STAFFORD since day fuckin dot of the shop, we're HYPED to have him in as our first resident artist in the new location loft studio!

You might remember Joe's work from his SOLD OUT exhibition, 'Nervous Wreck' at The Culprit Club in August 2017, which was our first ever sell out show!

Joe has created countless logos and artworks for us over the years and has also hand made and painted all of the signage featured on our store front. He will be occupying the upstairs loft studio for an unrefined amount of time, because we'd like to keep him close for as long as possible, so pop in and visit from from Tuesday - Sunday from 10am!


As the one selected intern from the insane amount of applications we received for the The Culprit Club design and communication internship, Daniel had us at hello!

His understanding, experience and passion for the creative industry (particularly the niches we're most accustom to) are as impressive as his skills. Working in the gallery alongside the Creative Director two days a week, Daniel is working on a number of creative design projects including still and animated graphics, web banners and event posters. Daniel will also be interviewing a number of artists he's selecting and contacting for our blog. Keep an eye on our Instagram and blog for examples of the work he's producing or drop him a line at


CRISIS is a Melbourne artist (originally working with our friends at The Artshole Studio) who re-located to Brisbane for our residency program! 

Hands down our most proactive and productive resident to date, Crisis created an original A3 artwork (painted with acrylics) each day he spent in store, which his later exhibited as a solo show in the galley titled 'Ultra High Frequency'. Crisis's composition of his artworks was be influenced by the individuals and experiences he encounters daily in The Culprit Club and online. The aim of UHF was to demonstrate the possibilities of art as a conversation between the artist and the audience, as well as to blur the lines between process, performance and expression itself. 

He also painted 2 two murals in the laneway, completed stop motion recordings of every artwork he created and has gone on to secure other mural commission jobs in Brisbane post residency.


Our resident babe, Harley and Handen is a Brisbane local working primarily with paper collage and hand-embroidery. 

Throughout her residency with The Culprit Club she is creating an embroidered and embellished denim jacket surrounding the theme of heartbreak. You can keep up with her her experiences and progress as she makes and creates in the gallery by following her youtube vlogs, which she is creating each day she's working in store. Keep an eye on her social accounts for more info and updates!

Our first interstate resident, Melbourne's own Inkboy stole our hearts from the get go. Smashing out an insane amount of individual and collaborative projects throughout his four- week residency placement, Mike truly brought new life to The Culprit Club. 

Projects he worked while in Brisbane with us included a series of digital caricatures of local laneway personalties titled 'Culprit Kids', a brush work mural inside the gallery (pictured), 2 x large scale brush and aerosol murals on the outside of the gallery and Winn Lane, a feature mural for Beach Burrito Co's second 'Creative Creatures' birthday party, as well as a (now sold) artwork collaboration piece in our first birthday group show, Back To Square One. 


Chris Doyle was an incredibly unique resident to The Culprit Club, using his time in the space to work on a series of silk screen and wood block original artworks and prints which featured in his follow up solo debut in the gallery titled, LITANY. 

Working primarily with traditional printmaking techniques, Chris's work focuses on the history of printmaking and the social impact of image dissemination. His deep concepts and intricate methods of creation really stand out amongst the sea of artists Brisbane.


Brisbane sweet-heart, Lucinda Wolber took to her residency placement with giant splash of colour, creating a body of work titled 'Nude Life' throughout her time at The Culprit Club.

Creating her works in store with ink and watercolour paint, her cheeky creations explored the thoughts and ideas of all the funny things people do while in the nude.

After completing her residency she went on to feature in The Culprit Club one year birthday show, Back To Square One selling her piece which was a collaboration with co-resident artist, Inkboy.


As our very first resident artist kicking off the Culprit Club residency program, Brisbane based visual artist and law/zoology student, Bella Reboul brought as much shine to the space as she did purpose.

Using her uniquely patient technique of pen to paper 'stippling' (dot work) she created a series of ethically focused artworks throughout her time with us, the series now known as 'Exodus'. With her animals coming to life on the page, the series focused on global biodiversity and the loss observed in the recent past through the portrayal of extinct vertebrates. 

Bella recieved an Ironlak Art and Design sponsorship throughout her residency placement, and sold a number of Exodus prints through the gallery and store.
