GET TO KNOW OUR ABORIGINAL ARTISTS
At Urban Road, we recognize the culture that defines us and celebrate it through art that records the stories and traditions of our past.
A piece of history in visual form, Aboriginal Art centers around Dreamtime stories, passed on for millennia.
In today’s modern world, these stories are kept alive by talented gatekeepers, Aboriginal artists.
Using traditional techniques, sometimes merged with contemporary ones to create a style of their own,
these storytellers share their art form and their culture with the world and to our homes.
Get to know the aboriginal artists behind these pieces.
