Casey Weldon is a native Californian. He studied art at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena from which he graduated in 2004. He has exhibited his work on both coasts and continues to work as an artist and illustrator in Brooklyn, New York.
"Not only have I been a fan of Casey's work for a long time but I've recently had the privilege of collaborating on a piece with him. I am very visually taken by his work but more than that I admire Casey's intelligence, wit, and ability to take an idea or current observation and turn it into a visual narrative. I enjoy the sense of humor and commentary he portrays in paintings that reference pop culture but what really gets to me is the work where the light-hearted turns a little more serious. In those pieces, he seemingly so easily infuses a melancholy and longing for change. He kind of walks the line between light and dark, funny and serious, cute and grotesque. The freedom and balance of expression he is able to display between the two polarities just works."
