Casey Weldon is an american artist born in southern California now based in New York, where he works as an illustrator.
Weldon is known for the use of melancholy and humor into his pop-surrealist view.
He plays with famous icons of popular culture (like Bill Murray, Robert Pattinson, Steve Buscemi). His most famous work is a weirdo serie of paintings called “4 Eyed Cats”: Weldon creates an optical effect that leads our eyes to focus on the cats, but it is very hard because… It’s both disturbing and charming at the same time.
What if famous photographs were actually taken as “Selfies”? Lowe South Africa ran an award-winning print advertising campaign for the Cape Times newspaper featuring a wartime kiss between a sailor and young woman in Times Square, Manhattan, Winston Churchill, Jackie and John Kennedy, Prince William and Kate Middleton at their wedding, and Beyers Naude and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu celebrating Tutu’s Nobel Peace Prize.
“You can’t get any close to the news. The Cape Times. Know all about it.”
Baron von Munchausen
