Australian Aboriginal Art is the last great tradition of art to be appreciated by the world at large. Despite aboriginal art being one of the longest continuous traditions of art in the world, dating back at least fifty millennia, it remained relatively unknown until the second half of the twentieth century. Prehistoric aboriginal paintings, rock art and petriglyphs are found widely across the continent.
Not only beautiful and exquisitely painted and executed, aboriginal artworks hold significant spiritual and cultural importance ensuring both decorative and meaningful narrative. It is a unique expression of human spirit. Today's aboriginal art and aboriginal paintings are often contemporary in nature. Using traditional forms and motifs aboriginal artwork is distinctly modern art that often borders on abstract art.
