Ken Done (b. 1940) is an Australian artist best known for his design work and his simple, brightly coloured images of Australian landmarks that form his ‘Done Art and Design’ brand. Known for his original painting style, his work is entwined with his national identity whilst referencing both European masters and Aboriginal artists. Done’s first solo exhibition was in Sydney in 1980, and he has since had over 50 solo exhibitions worldwide. In 1994, the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, held a major retrospective of Ken Done’s work called ‘Ken Done: the art of design’. His diverse work has led him to unique projects, such as creating a series of works for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, and participating in the movement for a new Australian flag. More recently, he has exhibited in Los Angeles and in London.
