Aboriginal Art Online Australian Aboriginal Art

Contemporary Aboriginal art is a vital part of the world's oldest continuous cultural tradition. It is also one of the most brilliant and exciting areas of modern art.

You can experience this richness by selecting from our range of quality paintings and limited edition prints by Aboriginal artists - together with information and comment to help understand the art works.

Because we work directly with Aboriginal community art centres, you can select from authentic works at very competitive prices - and much of the income goes to the artists themselves! All paintings come with certificates of authenticity issued by the artist's community art centre.

Visit our online galleries and explore the articles by experts, photographs and a wide range of information on Aboriginal art, culture and communities, using the navigation bar on the left. The most recent works on the site are listed under Latest Additions.

You can also buy books about Aboriginal art and culture from our online shop. Shopping with your credit card is totally safe, backed by our guarantee of on-line security.

Dialysis program sale Western Desert Dialysis Sale Closing Soon - But first some big reductions!

Until the end of April 2015 we are holding a sale of paintings to raise funds for the Western Desert Dialysis Program. This Program helps Aboriginal patients to receive medical treatment for kidney disease and to operate dialysis facilities in their home communities in the western and central deserts.

The prices of all remaining unsold paintings have just been reduced in price by $50 to $200 (depending on their original price).

The paintings have all been donated by individuals to support this cause and the entire proceeds from the sale of each work will go to the Program. Paintings in the sale range from larger, more expensive works to smaller pieces at modest prices.

Contemporary Aboriginal artists use a considerable variety of materials and techniques in painting. Some of these materials are rooted strongly in tradition - such as the use of ochre pigments in the Kimberley and bark from Arnhem Land. Other artists have adopted modern media and work with acrylic paints on canvas, archival paper or other surfaces.
