Fake Australian Art
There has been a recent influx of forged Aboriginal art in the Australian Art Markets.
The source is thought to have originated in Indonesia. The artworks for sale by Birubi Art bear the words aboriginal art, genuine and Australia but the Federal Court has found this to be in breach of our consumer laws as they were made overseas in Indonesia.
The art for sale includes boomerangs, message stones and didgeridoos, all with Aboriginal design art on them.
At the time of writing, the penalties that will be imposed on the wholesaler, Bilirubi Art Pty Ltd was not yet decided.

All the art for sale on this site is original art created by myself.
