Last weekend I took some time to go to Sydney. I happened to call in to see one of my good friends who runs a small gallery down in the rocks (which is 5 mins walk from Sydney harbour and the Opera House).
This small gallery is jam packed full of amazing traditional and contemporary Aboriginal Art. Most of the artists come from the top and central parts of Australia. The owner of the gallery is aboriginal and several times a year he flies up to the different aboriginal communities and purchases their work, which he then brings back to his gallery where he puts his own price on the work and sells it.
I prefer the more contemporary style as I find it really refreshing, bright and alive (not to say that the traditional pieces aren't).
Now let me tell you about some of the prices. The most expensive artist in this gallery is a guy by the name of Tommy Watson. This piece below sells for a cool $70,000.
Overall it was an amazing experience to visit the gallery to see the works up close.
