In the early days, Aboriginal Art represented the sacred Dreamtime stories of many artists through the use of traditional iconography.

However, since the beginning of the Contemporary Indigenous Art Movement in Australia in the early 1970’s, the evolution of Aboriginal art has really taken shape throughout Australia.

At the forefront of the Aboriginal Art Movement in Central Desert Australia were artists such as Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Tommy Watson Yannima and Minnie Pwerle who paved way for the shift from more traditional iconography to more contemporary, abstract depictions of the innate Dreaming within Indigenous culture.

Indigenous Art therefore evolved from batik paintings painted with traditional ashes and ochres, to more contemporary abstract representations of the innate Dreamtime stories of so many talented Indigenous artists.

As a result, many different Indigenous Australian communities have their own unique styles of painting which has added to the diverse and contemporary nature of Aboriginal Art.
