While Australia is culturally diverse the youth culture of the country is a separate culture from the mainstream. The young people of Australia face times that are distinctly different to the times their parents and grandparents grew up in, which has in turn has created a unique culture.
A culturally diverse country, Australia stages many events throughout the year to celebrate a wide variety of their cultural interests and pursuits. For many certain events are the highlight of their year and something to look forward to.
With such a wildly varying landscape and culture Australia offers it is little wonder that many artists are spoiled for inspiration. Some great artists have emerged from the Australian art world in recent years and are making their name well known.
Rather than follow the worldwide trends Australia has up and coming artists who have developed their own unique styles and are definitely worth keeping an eye on to see what they produce in months and years to come. Australia has a very rich and diverse culture and this is often reflected in the arts.
