Dion Beasley is an independent artist who was born in Alice Springs in 1991. He has
spent most of his life in communities throughout the Barkly region. Dion currently lives in
Tennant Creek with his friend and mentor Joie Boulter and attends high school there.
Dion applies observations of his current life including his connections with town camps in
Tennant Creek and surrounding communities into his artwork and is particularly interested
in animals. Dion also depicts the social structures and relationships between people and
animals, the interaction they maintain with each other and the world around them.
Dion’s humorous nature is captured in his artwork by a clever and intuitive use of space as
well as his ability to give a sense of character and movement to the animals, people and
places he draws.
