Encountering Three Intriguingly Imaginative Artists “Down Under”

When ARTBreakOUT co-founder Bonnie Astor visited Australia this past spring, she encountered an intriguing array of artworks and met several of their artisans. Featured above is the self-taught, aboriginal artist Harold Bowen with his work “Rainbow.” Several more images captured by Bonnie on her recent adventure follow:
