Australian Aboriginal Art! | Learning Pad | Tuesday, 27. August 2019
Having no written language for tens of thousands of years, Australian Aboriginal culture is rooted in storytelling. Especially the Dreamtime stories which explain the origins of their environment, the landscape, the plants and animals.The visual expression of these stories into paintings and design is unique. The famous dot painting technique has opened up this culture to a wider appreciation of aboriginal culture in the western world.The ability to convey complex stories through a single painting adds a new dimension to our visual language.
