Australian Aboriginal Art

Australia’s Aboriginal culture represents the oldest surviving culture in the world. Yet contemporary aboriginal art still retains its original rigid methods. Artists can only inherit the rights to the stories they paint. These rights can only be passed down through generations within certain skin groups. An Aboriginal artist cannot paint a story that does not belong to them through family.

The Aboriginal art movement ultimately went on to influence how Australians relate to the land and what is unique about the Australian landscape. It helped lead Australians away from the European colonialist filter and return to their roots.
