Australian Aboriginal Art

Australian Aboriginal art refers to art done by Australian Aborigines, covering art that pre-dates European colonisation As well as contemporary art by Aborigines based on traditional culture.

It is not restricted to merely paintings, but includes a wide variety of media including wood carving, sculpture and ceremonial clothing. To an extent, Aboriginal art also includes artistic embellishments found on weaponry and tools. Art was one of the key elements of Aboriginal culture.

Artwork was used to mark territory, record history, and tell stories. Rare ochres for paints were traded throughout northern Australia. Here at ArtDots.com we stock Traditional Aborginal Art or Dot Paintings & Hermannsburg Aborginal Artwork in the style of Albert Namatjira.
