Syd Bee + Casey Weldon

Seattle-based artists Syd Bee and Casey Weldon are both known for their fantastical, figurative works that mesmerize and haunt. Their unique explorations of humor and the macabre often find balance amid glowing pink and turquoise hues.

In an impressive mural debut, for SODO Track, Casey and Syd created the lovable, cinematic When it Rains it Purrs. Set against the backdrop of a Mount Rainier sunset, the crowds of people run in panic as glowing cats rain down from the sky. Loosely based on Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, the artwork offers a play on the phrase “raining cats and dogs” and a nod to the Seattle weather.
