GROTY: new work from Casey Weldon @ Gallery 1988

Opening this Thursday (December 8th) at Gallery 1988’s Venice location, “Groty” is the first solo show from artist/illustrator, Casey Weldon. A regular to Gallery 1988’s group exhibitions, Casey has prepared a collection of paintings for the show, using iconic 80’s toys and their attached nostalgia as a focal point for his work.

Casey’s inspiration for the show draws from a vast catalog of Saturday morning favourites, including MOTU (Battlecat/Cringer pictured above), Glo Worm, My Little Pony and GI Joe.

The show runs from December 8th-24th 2011 at Gallery 1988 Venice. All of the artworks will be made available to purchase through Gallery 1988’s store here after the event. (more pictures to follow…)
