We might be loud and proud with our love for Ken Done, but we know we’re not alone! Okay, only an artist of his magnitude and personality can make us rhyme like that…

But the truth is, we’re excited! Because an expansive new tome featuring the iconic artist’s life work is released today through Thames & Hudson. Ken Done: Art, Design, Life by curator Amber Creswell Bell is a comprehensive survey of the artist’s signature style over the last four decades, pulling together his most famous paintings, with his lesser-known work and archival materials.

From ad campaigns and doona covers to art cars and public spaces, the new book celebrates the prolific Australian artist and all the corners of life he’s made a mark on. Ken is the exuberant Australiana aesthetic personified, and this book just cements what we already knew – he’s a living legend!

We’re already poring over our copy of ‘Ken Done: Art, Design, Life’ – so get yours now here!
