Ken Done was awarded the GQ Iconic Artist, in association with Bvlgari, at their 10th Men of the Year awards held in at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Wednesday 16 November.
Accepting his award Ken said;
"Bit surreal really, the whole thing. I'm quite astounded to be here.
At my latest exhibition we had a book for people to write their comments in. A ten-year-old girl had written: "Really Ken? I can do better paintings and I'm still in primary school. Next time try harder." So I'm always going to keep trying. Thank you."
