|Aboriginal art is not only about paintings|
While most of the Aboriginal art is in the form of painting, there are many Aboriginal art prints using other media. For example, there is now a great demand for monochrome prints that are single prints using Aboriginal rock art. Aboriginal art prints are also often depicted on tableware, clothes, boomerangs, rugs, home decoration items or bags. Aboriginal art has become very popular, tourists visiting Australia are delighted with it and often buy souvenirs featuring aboriginal art prints as a gift for family and friends. In Raintree Art you will find huge selection of gifts and souvenirs featuring aboriginal art prints like for example kitchen items: bowls, ceramic, coasters, cups, food storage accessories, fridge magnets, salad servers, tableware, tea towels and travel mugs. You can choose from hundreds of patterns and colours.
|Only an Aboriginal artist can produce Aboriginal art|
It seems obvious, but Aboriginal art is only considered Aboriginal when painted by someone of that origin. A non-indigenous Australian does not have permission to paint an Aboriginal artwork. The place where the artist comes from tells you what his painting will look like. Not being a native artist, not from any particular tribe, cannot represent any form of Aboriginal art. But that doesn’t mean that all other ethnic groups are forbidden to create their own work. There are many workshops in Australia that are open to anyone who would like to learn more about the form of Aboriginal art.
