Dan Withey

Dan Withey was born in Birmingham England in 1986. In 2004 he immigrated to Australia and studied a Bachelor of Visual Communication (specialising in Illustration) at the University of South Australia. Upon graduating in 2007 with the Design Institute of Australia’s student of the year award, Withey decided to transition into a career in Visual Arts. Since this time he has had over 17 successful solo shows.

His art, although addressing dilemmas of modern day society such as consumerism, the environment and freedom, are still imbued with a playful humour and humbleness that make them completely unpretentious and accessible to all audiences. As Dan’s work continues to develop in both skillfulness and substance he is certainly an artist to follow.
