Things to keep in mind before buying aboriginal art

Table of Contents


Aboriginal art is a unique and beautiful way to decorate your home, but it can also be expensive. If you’re thinking about purchasing some Aboriginal artwork for your apartment or house, here are some things to keep in mind before you do:

Make sure the art is from an aboriginal artist.

When you buy Aboriginal painting, ensure an artist is an aboriginal person. The artist must be of Aboriginal descent and can prove this through a Certificate of Aboriginality or other official documents. It is also important to ensure that the artwork has been created by the person whose name appears on the certificate and their artistic ability and creativity.

Make sure the artwork is authentic.

As with any art, before you buy Aboriginal art, make sure it is authentic. Authentic Aboriginal art is created by Aboriginals using traditional techniques and materials. Authentic Aboriginal artists use their cultural motifs to create their artworks.

Authentic Australian Aboriginal Artwork should be accompanied by an ABNT Certificate of Authenticity (CoA). The CoA guarantees that the painting has been created by a member of Australia’s Indigenous community using traditional methods and designs; it also guarantees that the painting has not been reproduced in any way since its creation.

Make sure you are buying from an authorised dealer.

When buying aboriginal painting, make sure you buy from an authorised dealer.

An authorised dealer should be able to show you a copy of their licence and tell you where the art was made, who made it and where it came from. It is also important to note that not all aboriginal art is created equal; each piece has its own story behind it, so ask questions about your purchases.

Talk to the artist before you buy the art.

Before you buy, it’s important to talk with the artist. This will help you learn more about their work and background, which will help you make sure that the art is authentic.

Also, if you’re buying an aboriginal painting from an artist from your community or culture, talk to them about why they decided to become artists in the first place. You may find similarities between your experiences growing up as an Aboriginal person and those of other Aboriginal artists in your region or community!

Be willing to invest in well-made pieces.

If you’re serious about investing in Aboriginal art, it is important to remember that the value of your investment will only increase over time. It may take a while for the market to catch on, but expect your pieces to skyrocket in value when it does. This is especially true if you have an eye for quality and have already purchased a few pieces from different artists.

The more time passes from when you bought each piece, the more unique it will become as part of your collection—and if you have bought an artist’s entire body of work (e.g., their painting career), then there will be no other examples like yours anywhere else on earth! This makes every piece special enough that buyers would pay dearly for them at auction or sell them privately through dealerships or galleries where they can fetch prices upwards of six-digit figures (or more).


Finally: beware of paying top dollar for cheap paintings made overseas because sometimes people do take advantage of others’ ignorance when it comes time to buy artworks online, so just keep these four factors in mind when shopping around for good quality pieces which reflect both authenticities as well as integrity within those who create them.

Aboriginal art is beautiful, and it can be a great investment if you do your research. If you follow these tips, then you’ll be able to find the perfect piece of aboriginal art for your home or office.
