Adam Knight's a passionate man. The Melbourne gallery owner and art dealer just loves Aboriginal art. And he's not the only one.

This article focuses on the Aboriginal Art market, suggesting:

Aboriginal people may only make up two per cent of the Australian population but their art now accounts for half the value of the country's art market and around 70 per cent of total exports of Australian art.

Knight estimates it's worth around $A700 million ($NZ874.01 million) a year, although the industry and media reports suggest up to $A500 million.

The article is essential about Adam Knight from Aranda Art.
