Australia

Aboriginal art dates back 65,000 years, probably the oldest form of living art, since rock paintings in caves.

 

Contemporary Aboriginal art began in the early 1970s. 

 

The mesmerising dotted canvas are works by Aboriginal artists of central desert around the area of Uluru Rock. The dots are part of ancient art making tradition, body painting and sacred ceremonies.

 

They painted rivers, streams, waterholes, rocks, plants and animals on canvas, creating a field of movement and energy. 

 

When acrylics were introduced, the artists in this listing broke away from earth tones and burst forth with new colours and vibrancy.
