Aboriginal prints are an attractive and affordable form of Australian Aboriginal art. Artists have expanded rapidly in their use of print making as a form of artistic expression.

There is now a wide range of etchings, screenprints and other limited edition works by both established and emerging artists from communities in the Kimberley, Central and Western Desert and Top End (including Arnhem Land) regions of Australia.

Prints are arranged by regions - click on the link to see works from a particular region. If you want to read a short biography of the one of the artists, go to the Art and Artists section of our Website.

Johnny Bulunbulun
Title: Body Design I - Djilbunyamorr Waterhole
Price: $484.00 in Australia
$440.00 for Export.
PR519, 2000
Screenprint Edition Size: 75
41 x 64 cm
Johnny Bulunbulun is a senior member of the Ganalbingu group and is one of the most important singers and ceremonial men in north-central Arnhem Land. His clan lands lie in the Arafura Swamp area. This print shows the Waterhole Djilbunyamorr where Bulunblun's two brothers and one sister (deceased) were spiritually conceived. Bulubulun's mother and father were out hunting geese, and as they walked past this waterhole, the spirit of gumand, the magpie goose, came out and impregnated the mother. Djilibunyamorr was created in the beginning of time by gumang the magpie goose. It is located in the Arafura Swamp region, in the bottom, seaward area, called Gunbarranga. The central horizontal bar represents a dead log at a place called Junggibarparnyamurru. This log is extremely sacred for the Ganalbingu who are the only ones allowed to paint it. The cross-hatched borders represent the expanses of Ganalbingu country. The two orange cone-like shapes are painted over the shoulders, representing fire and the fire spirits, or jongke, which burn under the water. The two circular shapes refer to these spirits.

Johnny Bulunbulun
Title: Sugar Glider
Price: $396.00 in Australia
$360.00 for Export.
PR522, 2000
Lithograph Edition Size 30
30 x 46 cm
The artist has depicted his mother's dreaming at a site called Wurlkkubimerre. This site forms the focus of the identity for a number of clans, who each have common icons. Bulunbulun is the 'protector' or 'guardian' for his mother's dreaming and is therefore entitled to depict aspects of the sacred story. The long shape in the centre represents a hollow tree trunk, containing the galanjanjh 'bees' wax honey comb, shown as the circle at the bottom. The dots are yarrpanj 'bees' flying in and out of their hives. The animals in the painting are warna 'honey' seekers: narrgenarrge 'northern brush tailed possum' and warpurr 'sugar glider'.

Title: Ngalyipi Jukurrpa - Snake Vine Dreaming
Price: $420.00 in Australia and Export.
PR801, 2005
Screenprint, edition size 30
51 x 70 cm
This Jukurrpa comes from Mina Mina far to the west of Yuendumu. In the Dreaming women danced at Mina Mina and digging sticks rose up out of the ground. The women collected these up and travelled on, dancing and creating many places. The central motif of this work is Ngalyipi, or snake vine, a rope-like creeper used as a ceremonial wrap. The circles represent Jintiparnta, native truffle, which the women gathered for sustenance on their long journey which eventually took them beyond Warlpiri country.
