Having a passion for Aboriginal art for more than a decade Tony Straccia has
been an avid collector and recently launched Indigenu enabling this
collection to be viewed, sold today and into the future. In the main
Tony has formed relationships with preferred artists and has included
members of prominent artistic families – Pwerle, Napangardi, Brumby
and Kngwarreye with some spanning a decade.
In some instances he supports artists when they have been required to
travel to Adelaide for medical treatment. Painting enables these
artists to have some additional income while they are in Adelaide and
the additional costs that come with medical treatment and the
Tony purchases the works from the directly from the artists and arranges
exhibitions and events to support their work. Indigenu provides art
work at the lower end of the art market as Tony is keener on having
these beautiful works displayed and the culture shared, rather than
goals of profit and status. In addition to supporting individual
artists, Tony also travels to the Red Centre for the annual ‘Desert
Mob’ event where artists from the region congregate for a massive
art sale, its also a lot of fun apart from the scorching heat! These
trips also give him the opportunity to meet and adopt new artists. In
2008 Tony met Gracie Morton Pwerle and continues to communicate and
acquire work from her. Rummaging through piles and piles of paintings
to find those that appeal is very much part of the experience.
In addition to supporting Indigenous art and culture he also serves as a
volunteer at the annual Spirit Festival, where the richness of
Aboriginal culture is shared and enjoyed by the people of Adelaide.
Welcome To Indigenu, Palya
Indigenu is dedicated to promoting Aboriginal art and culture. It is not just about art but more so relationships that have been forged between Indigenu and a cluster of artists and their families over a period of a decade now.
Indigenu is a gallery dedicated to providing a fair price to collectors and artists alike. We were founded on the principle that both Aboriginal artists and art lovers can benefit from a regular interaction with each other. Encouraging our visitors and valued customers to attend painting demonstrations, exhibitions and other events is part of the shared cultural experience.
