Overview

We take great pride in representing a large range of high quality Aboriginal artworks by highly talented indigenous artists from affordable to highly collectable investment paintings. All our paintings come with Certificate of Authenticity detailing the artists Biography and photographs of the Artist holding your painting. The paintings are painted on Belgium Linen with Acrylic paints. The Linen has been primed sized and stretched before the artist paints on it. This is an excellent surface for your painting and makes our paintings a standard size (cheaper to frame).

If the attitude of the owner/manager is any reflection on how the artists are treated then please buy your art from a more ethical source. As per most cities/towns in the world, shops in the main mall are not necessarily the best to buy from.More
