Mr. Patterns

Loading...
Geoff Bardon, an art teacher in Papunya Australia, presents the art of the Papunya Tula which is commonly known as dot painting. He observed that the culture of the Aboriginals was being destroyed so he was instrumental in encouraging them to paint their traditional designs using western materials. Beginning with children's projects he later included the elders whose paintings were inspired by their ancestral roots. Although he was successful with the projects with the Aboriginals it was not without personal sacrifice, as he was reviled by the white population who did not want the racial tensions which existed between the Aboriginals and them to be exposed.
