Aboriginal art and culture has attracted worldwide attention with its ancient iconography and universal philosophy. The Dreamtime Stories depicted in their art reveal thousands of years of history and demonstrate a respect and love for their inherent culture and land.
Each painting tells a story which represents a particular song and dance. Harmony with nature and survival without destruction are paramount issues in Aboriginal art and culture. The oldest civilization known to man, Aboriginal Art has no written language and consequently relies on storytelling through painting song and dance to pass Dreamtime stories on, from one generation to another.
International focus and a greater appreciation of Aboriginal Art have fostered the development of contemporary movements and a further understanding of traditional Aboriginal culture.
Jinta Art Gallery is an established Dealership that provides a program of National and International exhibitions and events focusing on recent developments in contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art. Our establishment in Sydney, has developed a reputation for promoting and encouraging Aboriginal Artists and expanding public awareness of their art and culture.
We have collated one of the finest collections of Aboriginal Art in Australia. All paintings are supplied with A certificate of Authenticity and full Documentation is supplied with each painting. Packing and worldwide shipping is available.
By promoting Aboriginal art and culture throughout the world we are helping to develop the resurgence of the Dreaming as well as a healthy economic base for the Aboriginal communities. It is important that the spirit of Jukurrpa (Dreamings) is revived to aid in the healing of the entire planet. Focusing on the paintings of Aboriginal society we are able to incorporate this strong foundation with a modern definition for all to understand and benefit from.
