Seán Whelan Dempsey is an artist living and working in Dublin. His work is largely made using the mediums of screen printing, and painting. Drawing inspiration from that which is close to him, Seán’s work is autobiographical. From struggles with both mental health issues and with physical injury, to issues of alcohol and substance abuse and his formative years during adolescence - the work is depicted using light, playful, and often humorous imagery.
Seán’s work serves as a means of diarying his own personal tribulations. The work is an effort to capture a sense of dis-ease, of paranoia, a sense of being broken/fractured and of being trapped.
