Australian Aboriginal Art Exhibited by Internationally Renowned Aboriginal Artists

By John Arthur Subscribe to RSS | June 20th 2012 | Views:

The beauty of art goes beyond time and space. It doesn't discriminate on race, age, gender, language or culture. This is very true with Australian Aboriginal art. The traditions of the Indigenous Australians are colourfully blended and interwoven into striking strokes to convey a rich culture. What makes Australian Aboriginal art very rewarding is how the Aboriginal people have shared their long artistic traditions with the non-Indigenous society. Aboriginal art is a creative revelation of their past, life, culture and tradition. The very distinctive mark of contemporary Aboriginal art is the presence of their traditional symbols, which use conventional designs that have cultural or religious significance or power. The Butler Goode Gallery Exhibits Australian Aboriginal ArtistsThe indigenous behaviour, beliefs, rituals and life are all told in a story that only art can express. The Butler Goode Gallery believe in the importance and depth of this artistic expression, that's why they exhibit the enriching and captivating world of Aboriginal art in their gallery. They boast a diverse portfolio of artwork painted by up-and-coming and well-established artists. Here are some of the amazing artists featured in their gallery:
