Inner voices is about my own inner dialog. I think we all have destructive voices, sometimes they are critical of others, and sometimes they are full of self-loathing that they are almost always petty and should be ignored. The monkey creature on the characters shoulder whispering in his ear represents these thoughts, and the way the thoughts can influence your view of the world and yourself.
Dan Withey was born in Birmingham England. 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 20 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.
