Urban Aboriginal Paintings

Gwion

Urban Aboriginal art has developed in parallel with the rapid growth in Aboriginal art activity in more remote areas.

Artists in urban settings and in the larger Australian cities during the 1960s and 1970s began using art as a means of powerful social comment and political expression. Their work looks to Aboriginal sources for inspiration and is informed by Western, and occasionally other, art traditions. For more general information, see our pages on Urban Aboriginal art and Urban artist biographies.

The works below are by the artist Arone Meeks, a distinguished painter and print maker from Cairns in north east Queensland. For more information about Arone see the Biography of Arone Meeks. Information about Arone and other Queensland Aboriginal artists is contained in the book Gatherings, available from our online shop.
