Dan Withey originally from Birmingham, England, emigrated to Australia in 2004 and now resides in Adelaide, where he studied at the University of South Australia and obtained a Bachelor in Visual Communication.
While on the course he specialized in illustration, he then decided to become an artist. He taught him self to paint and with that had his first show and continues to paint six years later, with 17 successful solo shows around Australia to date.
This prolific artist is one to watch out for, Withey is the very embodiment of the work he creates, with eccentric characters and an eye catching instinctive use of colour. His intuitive work comes from the world around him, from direct life experiences and the things that seep into Dans daily life. He is part of the art, and the art is part of him, and if you have met Dan this is clear to see.
