Aboriginal art is much sought after by many collectors and art enthusiasts. Aboriginal art has been available for a very long time, and in the last ten or so years has been promoted quite heavily, and thus fuelled a greater interest in this fascinating, and very different artwork.
The quality of this art is excellent with more and more emerging young artists coming on the scene and showing/selling their paintings.
