    Episode 28 Ken Done

    Our season of colour comes to an end and have we got a treat for you for the final episode. We chat with the legend, the icon, Ken Done! The kids from the 80s and 90s grew up with Ken Done artwork on their t shirts, beds, bags, he was everywhere and it was so authentically and proudly Australian. But there's so much more to Ken than this and we dive deep into his story from his childhood, to his early days at art school, then travelling the world as a creative director for an advertising agency, all before starting his art career at age 40!

    There is so much to pack in here and Ken weaves his story masterfully, it's a beautiful conversation and there are lots of laughs and surprises along the way. This is one of the most amazing guests that has ever been on the podcast, and it seems only fitting that we round out our colour season with the man who captured every hue of this beautiful country on his canvas.

    Episode 25 Daimon Downey

    Episode 25 Daimon Downey

    After a childhood in the picturesque town of Bellingen, artist Daimon Downey was ready to take the big smoke by storm with his art. But a fortuitous session jamming at a party lead to an unexpected career, the frontman of Australian dance music group Sneaky Sound System. Safe to say not your average career diversion... a few hit songs, a couple of ARIA awards and fourteen years later, he decided to hang up the headphones and get back to his first passion, painting.
    Nowadays, Daimon is living in Bondi in his apartment/art studio where he has taken the art scene by storm. Sold out shows, cooler than cool collaborations, and some very funky interior fit outs along the way, Daimon has made an indelible mark on the scene and there's no slowing down.
    With a strong pastel colour palette, his art is loud, full of life, pace and unabashed colour. We chat about the Sneaky years, where he gets his inspo, his home and what's around the corner. The man oozes cool and we had a blast chatting with him.
