About Back Studio

The black industrial warehouse building located in the Tauriko Business Estate is a unique industrial art studio and is fast becoming one of the art Nexus in Tauranga.

This contemporary working studio produces original art of many genres to be viewed and purchased.

Resident artist Jacki Barklie makes and creates art, runs workshops, and likes to collaborate with other like-minded creative practitioners.

From large contemporary abstract art, suited to interior design, such as hotel foyers, modern homes, corporate buildings, to small intimate pieces of art and artefacts suitable for gift giving.

We cater for that extra special piece that is original and has been created by design, made through curiosity and touched by artisans’ hands.

Our vision for Back Studio is to add to the vibrancy to the local art scene. Giving options to purchase art and artefacts, rent art, or be inspired by art.

Our goal for this Art Studio is to be an approachable, inviting space for all who visit.
A space filled with colour, inspiration and diverse art.
A space to immerse in the eclectic range of arts, a space that touches the senses.

This light filled contemporary art studio has been thoughtfully designed and considered to create a space that is malleable, making it a multi-purpose arena for a variety of artisans and inspirations.

Back Studio is a creative space where artists and audience will connect.
Our motto: #anythingbutordinary.

Back Studio also look to gather skilled creative practitioners and artists from different genres. Artists with a similar philosophy as ours to collaborate, brainstorm fresh new ideas and create something extraordinary for the audience.

Small business supporting small business, working together, showcasing together, complimenting each other’s work. This makes it an extra ordinary sensation.

Together we can create an energy in the studio making it an exciting place to connect with and enjoy.


Art makes you happy.
