Our History

Studio M. was originally founded by Michael Brewster, a restorer with over 15 years experience in the poster industry. He spent 8 years working in New York City, managing some of the city’s largest poster restoration studios and vintage poster galleries before returning to Sydney in 2008 to establish Studio M.

In 2017, Studio M. relocated from its original home in Sydney to Melbourne under the management of Hanna and her team.
