Folk Art paintings are the oldest living art tradition in the world and represents one of the most fascinating and popular art investments to date. There are just a few artists painters in PNG (colors, brushes and materials are not easily accessible) and their work is highly prized for its uniqueness and collected globally.
Embracing color, artists produce major paintings around Papua New Guinea’s Independence in 1975, aspects of colonial history, customs, people and their own experiences with a visual inventiveness suggesting new ways of thinking about the emergence of ‘modern art’ beyond the West.
The PNG artists see themselves as the custodians of their remote country. The paintings we see on canvas today were, originally, often painted in the sand and only lasted until the wind blew. Canvas and art paper are more durable and have given the world a chance to learn about this amazing and rare folk art, while offering us as well, a glimpse into a way of life from afar which customs and values differ so much from our own.
Papua New Guinea's art forms are as diverse as they are distinctive. In a country where language varies from village to village, it can be expected that artistic expression will differ in style just as dramatically. Paintings, weapons and carvings are produced by different people in different places, according to their traditional skills and beliefs, and they make wonderful collector’s pieces as they are each unique and a reflection of the artist’s talent and interpretation of life, an insight into legends and rituals from remote lands as well.
