Contemporary Aboriginal Art is a movement that started around the 1960__™s. A group of Aboriginal men living in the Central Desert of Papunya begun painting a traditional Honey ant Dreaming onto the walls of the local primary school. This was an attempt to pass on culture & law to the next generation of Indigenous children, this decision in the 1960__™s has made a huge impact on Contemporary Art in Modern Society today. This movement has grown into the Contemporary Art you see today, some still made up of these dots and lines that symbolize the traditional stories that connect the tribe to the families, to each other, the land and the dreamtime of creation.
