Ever since my first visit to Australia several years ago, I have been fascinated by Aboriginal art. In order to know more about this interesting form of art, I have visited several exhibitions and read many books about the subject. In the course of years I have collected some beautiful paintings by great aboriginal artists. As I have no room to hang all my paintings, I change them every now and then. And sometime I sell some, just to make room for others. At the moment I have 4 smaller paintings, grouped in a square, hanging in my living room (see image above).
In the the Jan/Feb issue of Australian Vogue Living magazine, the home of Linda Gregoriou was featured. Linda’s stunning apartment in Sydney is full of aboriginal art. This lady has the most beautiful collection! The Vogue Living photos of her apartment have already been featured on decor8 and Desire to Inspire. As both the paintings and the apartment are gorgeous, I would like to share them with you as well in case you have not seen them yet. By the way, the ceiling light Zettel’z (image above) is designed by Ingo Maurer and is a favorite of mine.
Every aboriginal region in Australian has a different style of painting. Some regions are known for their bold colours. Artists from other regions use ochre colors for their paintings, like the art works in the image above.
