Seattle-based artist Casey Weldon is best known for his use of melancholy and humor in conjunction with the iconography of modern pop culture.

Weldon intentionally disorients the viewing experience by juxtaposing a subject that is impulsively attractive yet eerily disturbing. With this subtle manipulation the viewer finds themselves drawn towards these subjects, yet can’t quite focus on them, as a result of the eye fatigue experienced by countless hours on the internet, often fueled by the mindless addictive nature of social media.
