What is Aboriginal Wall Art?
The indigenous inhabitants of Australia are the Aboriginal people who span many different tribes across the country. The culture dates as far as 60,000 to 80,000 years when the Aboriginals first reached Australia. All across Australia, there are sights that have maintained Aboriginal works. As the many different Aboriginal languages aren’t written down, the culture is portrayed in symbols and icons depicted in their artwork. Aboriginal artwork comes down to the tribe they come from. The dot technique is one of the easily recognizable characteristics of Aboriginal paintings, however, not every Aboriginal is permitted to create artworks using this technique as some tribes historically never used it. Another technique is cross-hatching, or Rarrk, which is used mainly by Aboriginal artists in the Northern Territory. Rarrk is identified by the long, thin parallel lines that cross one another.
Traditional Aboriginal wall art uses materials obtained from the local land and used to paint on rocks. Colours like white, yellow, red were produced from ochre and iron clay pigments. They also painted on leaves, carved rock and wood, and created sand paintings.
Oldest Aboriginal Artwork
One of the oldest examples of Aboriginal prints is a 17,300-year-old rock art painting depicting a kangaroo. The work was discovered in the Kimberley region of Western Australia and is not the only Aboriginal art in the region. Red ochre was used to paint the ceiling of the rock shelter.
Emily Kame Kngwarreye
Born over 200 kilometres from Alice Springs, Emily Kame Kngwarreye is one of Australia’s most important artists. Kngwarreye only began to paint later in life, and she created over 3,000 artworks. Inspiration for her artworks came from one source, her Dreaming. Kngwarreye was the first artist to use the Dub Dub method of painting, where acrylic paint is gathered onto a paintbrush and then pushed into the canvas.
