Aboriginal Art - A Long Standing Art Form With Numerous Forms

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 132

Aboriginal art is a well known type of art that is actually a relationship of native art and non-native Australian art.

This form of art consists of a wide variety of mediums including sand painting, wood art, rock carving and even leaf art. This really is a fascinating type of art and possibly among the most interesting types of art the world has ever discovered.

It wasn't until the later 1980's that rock painting was recognized in Western Australia, with these particular paintings known as Bradshaws; these mural paintings were first recorded by Joesph Bradshaw, a Western European explorer of that era.

A variety of indigenous art forms around Australia

Rock sculptures and engravings

There are many varieties of rock engravings in Australia, with the most famous being the Murujuga in Western Australia. The many kinds of rock engravings and sculptures in fact is dependent upon the nature of rock being used and you will usually find that from one rock to the next, the styles and designs will be different. For instance, the Sydney rock art uses a specific design that can't be located anywhere else in Australia and uses people and animals as symbols for several definitions and ways of expression.

Rock arrangements

This really is another interesting type of art that is located in Australia and again, there are different forms over the land. Among the most famous stone arrangements in Australia has to be the circles of Victoria, which is made up of 1m stones which are usually set into the soil and are used to illustrate representations of anglers along with other everyday people of that time.

Bark art

Bark paintings are in fact fast changing to the most elaborate and highly revered art forms around the globe. In fact, bark painting is now considered a "fine art" and you'll see some very high costs on bark painting examples sold around international marketplaces in various places around the world. In reality, bark art is still very much, an active type of art form which was first started by the aboriginals many hundreds of years ago.

Modern aboriginal art

One surprising aspect of this style of art is that it's still definitely, a working art form in local Australia. During the mid 1930s, aboriginal artists became recognised as experienced artists in the nation and many of the paintings were sold out in exhibitions around Australian cities such as Adelaide and also Melbourne. In the late 1980s, other forms of aboriginal art began to arrive on the scene and now, well into the 2000's, aboriginal art happens to be among the most well known styles of art found in the nation, and indeed all over the world.

There are so many different factors that you can easily write about with regard to aboriginal art and this post just skims the surface. Thanks for looking through and I really hope you found this particular article interesting.
