What we do

Up to 80% of Indigenous Art for sale in Australia is inauthentic or fake.

That’s why Aboriginal Art Co. empowers artists while giving consumers a clear ethical choice with authentic art and high-quality products that benefit the creators directly.

What drives us

Our Vision

A future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have full agency over their art and cultural practices.

Our Mission

Promote and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts through cultural, creative and economic platforms.

Supporting the sector

Aboriginal Art Co will create impact.

As creators ourselves, we’re not your typical art dealers. We know how important it is for Indigenous artists and makers to get their art, products and culture out to the world on their own terms.

We’ve built pathways and platforms to make this a reality. It’s about self-determination with how artists’ and creators’ trade. It’s about having control of the narrative. And it’s about choosing how to share 60,000 years of culture and history.

We don’t want you to be part of the problem either. At Aboriginal Art Co, you’re buying art and products that fairly and directly benefit the source.
