Ken Done, Amber Cresswell Bell

£45.00

A comprehensive and extensively illustrated monograph on the Australian artist and designer Ken Done, celebrating the man, his life’s work and his legacy

Overview

At once ad man and artist, designer and entrepreneur, Ken Done has achieved what few others have. His signature style has graced ad campaigns and cars, magazine covers and duvet covers, public spaces and landmark cultural events, but it is his unabated passion for painting that sustains him. For more than forty years, Done has chronicled the Australian way, documenting how it feels to be Australian with an exuberance that is immediately recognisable.

Ken Done: Art Design Life documents Done’s expansive art and design practice over four decades and provides a fascinating insight into the artist and his oeuvre. The book features both early and lesser-known works, as well as the iconic paintings of Sydney Harbour, the Outback and the reef. It opens an extensive archive, providing readers in-depth access to the catalogue of fashion and homewares, and the designs that came to define an era.
