Ken Done is one of Australia's most well-recognised artists. His distinct artistic style cannot be compared to other successful artists.
Ken Done and his many iconic artistic productions represent the visually profound nature of Australia. His works are usually simple, with bold colours and strong lines. His colours capture the cool blues of the ocean and sky and the rich reds and oranges of Australian earth. Ken Done's artworks often feature iconic buildings such as Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. He has frequently painted the harbour, and his artworks capture the movement of yachts on a windy day and the business of crowded beaches filled with sun-loving people. The Ken Done Gallery, located near Sydney Harbour, has the largest collection of his works in Australia as well as items for purchase.
Many of his artworks have been transferred into affordable consumer items, including t-shirts, swimwear and even tea-towels. This ensures that lovers of Australian art can take home souvenirs with strong cultural significance. A visit to the Ken Done Gallery and shop will not only educate you about a great artist but about Australian culture and lifestyle. The Rocks can be easily reached by bus, train or walking from anywhere in the central business district. Address: 1/5 Hickson Road, The Rocks, NSW, 2000.
