‘Important Aboriginal Art #1’is a collection of exceptional Aboriginal paintings by some of Australia’s foremost Indigenous artists.
Australian Aboriginal art is very diverse and stems from a culture that can be traced back thousands of years. What once would have been drawn in the sand, onto the body or on rock walls is now portrayed in paintings.
When contemporary Aboriginal art gained momentum during the 1970’s and 1980’s, this garnered both national and international interest and acclaim. Generally untrained in the visual arts, the artists were painting stories of cultural and history that radiated an energy and power which captivated viewers.
