History of Rudi

Rudi’s Painting Service was established in 1967 by Rudi Pauli, who, prior to migrating to Australia worked in Vienna as a Church Painter and travelled throughout Europe restoring famous paintings. He produced high quality mirror finishes and hung elaborate wallpapers to some very exclusive homes. His knowledge and attention to high quality paint finishes soon lead him to become a highly sought after painter.

Rudi took pride in every single job that he undertook – whether it was a 100sq house in Toorak or a 2 bedroom terrace house in Brunswick. Over the years Rudi established a recognised family business employing many apprentices to which he bestowed much of his knowledge on. Some of those apprentices now run very successful businesses too.

Rudi has instilled his techniques, skills and values of professionalism into his son Matthew – who has operated the business now for 18 years. Matthew realising that the values that were taught to him were the success of his father’s business and still runs the business today with the same focus as his father.

Matthew who is also a qualified Interior Designer and Paint Restorer now brings more than 25 years of experience to a 49 year old family business. His knowledge of colour, speciality paint finishes, paper hanging and paint rectification/restoration is what makes Rudi’s Painting Service highly sought after in the restoration of National Trust and Heritage listed properties. Whether it’s safely removing lead based paint to applying Gold Leaf, Rudi’s Painting Service can do it all.
