As studio spaces go I’ve found none as drool worthy as the Elms Lester Painting Rooms. Based off Tottenham Court Road in London it’s an old tall building originally used for painting theatre backdrops. Now it’s a gallery that keeps half the old studio for resident artists to paint in, while exhibiting in the other half.
Artists such a Jose Parla, Delta and perennial favourite of mine Anthony Lister regularly show there. Definitely worth a knock at their door if your around that area.
