PAINTING COUNTRY DVD

$48.00

Balgo Hills or Wirrimanu is located on the edge of the Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts in far north-west Australia. Despite its isolation, this is home to some of Australia's most famous Indigenous artists whose paintings hang in galleries and private collections around the world.

 

Balgo art is famous for its hot bright colours, bold composition and creative brush techniques. Its origins lie in the traditional designs done in sand and body paintings. But in less than 20 years it has evolved into one of the most innovative movements of modern art in Australia.

 

The Balgo artists draw their inspiration from their deep spiritual connection with the land. But none of these artists live in the land they paint.

 

Most were born deep in the desert where they lived a nomadic life until the impact of white settlement forced them to seek sanctuary in missions such as Balgo.
