Casey Weldon (USA) graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 2004. After living in Las Vegas, where he operated his studio, he relocated to Brooklyn, and then finally Seattle, Washington where he now lives and works as a full time illustrator and fine artist. Weldon utilizes a bright, vibrating hyper-chromatic palette and carefully constructs layers of neon glaze to create a supernatural glow, almost as though the painting is illuminated from within. The result is a cinematic narrative that draws us into the story. Casey best known for his use of melancholy and humor in conjunction with the iconography of modern pop culture, leading his critics to designate his style as post-pop surrealism. Weldon has exhibited and sold his work in galleries across the United States and his pieces now reside in collections across the world.
