Welcome

Aboriginal Steel Art (ASA) creates and supplies a range of corporate gifts and gift lines, awards and trophies, fine art, structural and public art installations. It is wholly owned and operated by Indigenous man Wayne McGinness and his wife Lucy.

All pieces are handcrafted in Kuranda, Queensland, Australia, giving the clients and customers a piece of authentic Australian Indigenous art.

Wayne’s ability and talent to combine his contemporary style of Aboriginal Art with present-day technology and materials has opened up a niche market for these unique products.  Using marine grade stainless steel to ensure a superior finish, ASA creates a range of products to satisfy client needs.

The company specialises in:

  1. Corporate Gifts and Gift Lines – These products cater for the customer who is looking to buy authentic aboriginal art either as a gift for clients or staff, or as a wholesale item for sale in their own business. There is also the option of having the pieces presented in hand painted boxes.

  2. Fine Art – ASA sells larger pieces in Art Galleries throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Pieces can also be commissioned in consultation with the client to suit their individual needs and requirements.

  3. Awards and Trophies – They have a large range of different award styles, as well as commemorative gifts, ceremonial plaques, Acknowledgment of Tradition Owners and Staff Recognition trophies.

  4. Structural and Public Art Installations – Recent commissions include an installation of 6 x 2m geese suspended in a hotel lobby in Darwin, Totem Pole for Red Cross Cairns, Decorative Panels for Wesfarmers Commemorative Wall and a sculpture on the Esplanade in Cairns as part of Esplanart 2014

I have used Aboriginal Steel Art’s work as corporate gifts for visiting international media and travel trade over the past 12 months. The joy of our international visitors receiving an indigenous handmade metal native animal is something they value highly. The interest in Australia’s Indigenous culture is high on the list for most international visitors to Australia. The size of the small handmade gift allows for easy transportation home.
