Outback - Ken Done
Rich reds, fuchsias, oranges, umbers, blacks, pinks and cadmium yellows abound in this ode to the Australian Outback. A delightful, compact package, Ken Done’s Outback is one of four books in a collectable set exploring his most iconic landscapes.
As one of the country’s favourite cultural icons, Ken Done requires no introduction. Straddling the worlds of design, illustration and fine art, his wildly evocative work captures the essence of Australia with bold strokes and bright colours.
Inimitably recognisable, his striking, signature style has engaged the eye, the heart and the imagination of the Australian public for decades and continues to inspire each successive generation of art lovers, creatives and tourists.
At once decorative, illustrative and abstract, a selection of over 400 of Ken Done’s landscape works are collected in four beautifully packaged collectable books, categorised by the subject matter that has defined his career: Sydney, the Outback, the reef and the beach.
Creative, optimistic and bold, Ken Done’s work reflects the vibrant heart of Australia and Australians.
