Fine Artists Take on Tattoos: Casey Weldon

Fine Artists Take on Tattoos: Casey Weldon

This artist's beautiful surrealistic paintings are as humorous as they are haunting.

Eerie subjects, cheeky nods to popular culture and a dark color palette speckled with ominous glowing light- these are just a few of the things that made me fall in love with Casey Weldon's paintings. 

Weldon is a fine artist originally hailing from California and currently living and working in Seattle, Washington as a painter and illustrator. Weldon is a master of combining socially current iconography with his dark sense of humor and hints of nostalgia, fantasy and sadness. The outcome are these insanely beautiful, relevant, otherworldly paintings. 

Weldon frequently updates his Instagram with new works and exciting news, and currently has paintings in galleries across the world. Check out some of my favorites below.
