Stone Age Aboriginal Art 

 

Dating back to 60,000 to 80,000, Aboriginal art may be the oldest form of art as seen in rock paintings in the Northern Territories of Australia.

 

Painting primarily in earth tones of ochre, yellow, red, black and brown, aboriginal artists now transform the language of their history into gestures of abstraction.

 

Contemporary Aboriginal art began in the early 1970s. 

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