WHO ARE WE

Sharing our culture is the beginning of creativity

Le Petit Bateau (“the little boat”) is an art collective launched in May 2014 and has quickly become a much-loved collective for many Sydneysiders.

Everything started in a garage and backyard space at the rear of a residential building on Bondi Road, kitted out by Anne-Sophie Ridelaire (AnSo), a curator from Paris, and her husband Gaetano Russo (Tano), an Italian boat designer.

Eventually LPB had to move and currently resides in a new and unique shared space with hair salon "Vincent&Dupree'" in Charring Cross. This rustic hair salon matched LPB's style and hosts a perfect indoor space for exhibitions and a beautiful garden space out the back, giving LPB the ability to once again host multiple events and exhibitions on a regular basis.

LPB prides itself on building a platform for many local and international creative's, be it painters, writers, poets, musicians, jewellers, chefs... basically any form of art ! It is for this reason that at LPB you will experience art in 360 degrees, surrounded by an eclectic and friendly mix of both locals and foreigners in a warm, welcoming and non-pretentious environment.

Le Petit Bateau actually reflects AnSo and Tano’s dream of turning a real boat into a gallery.
