"Dreamtime Elder (Aboriginal Australian)", 2019
Artist: John Peaspanen
About the Artwork: This guy's eyes have seen it all. For this portrait’s background, I wanted to emulate the traditional Aborigine paintings of the Dreamtime, the place in between all time and space, where humans dream the world into being.
“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
