Scottish artist / curator Stewart Russell and English designer Donna O’Brien founded Spacecraft Studio in Melbourne in 2000. Since then Spacecraft Studio has been committed to creating and communicating high quality contemporary artwork and design concepts through self initiated projects and through collaborations with outstanding artists, architects and designers.

Artwork and design projects created at our studio have been exhibited and acquired for collections in significant Australian and international contexts, from the Tate London to the Tiwi Islands, from Art Basel to Paris Fashion Week, from Japanese Hotel projects to an artist talks programme in Collingwood.

Our clients and collaborators are equally diverse : Brook Andrew, John Wardle Architects, The National Gallery of Victoria, Aesop, Emily Floyd, Tiwi Design, Museum of Contemporary Art, Jon Campbell, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Tolarno Gallery, Darren Sylvester, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Bus Projects, Open House Melbourne, Lyon House…
