Casey Olejniczak – Tattoo Artist, Artist, Master Fabricator –
Casey Olejniczak, or Casey for the rest of this post (with that last name its hard not to hack up a hairball), has been a close business associate for over a decade. Casey and I worked on numerous collaborations in the 2000’s for South Swell Sports, Adrenaline, All Out Lacrosse, All Out Sports, graphical design, brand managing and designing, and most of all as a great friend. He is truly gifted with a mind that sees the unseen. I have watched him take supplies from thrift stores and make it into masterpieces over the course of 3 days of stripping, painting, and re-designing. The first piece of art I bought from him still hangs over my living room. Adorning the room with “Clarity” and insight that we are not alone. It is a clean and concise contemporary piece (5 pieces in total all covered in Plexiglas and hand cut from an oak door).
Whether it’s graphical design for his business card, a new company’s branding kit, or a skateboard……..Casey is always going to make it new, original, crisp, clean, and most of all “his own.” His script work has been featured in many clothing lines and sign shops. He has had two art shows in D.C. this year.
The wood furniture that he has made is elegant, dashing, and opulent. It is the touch of a finished carpenter with the design of a master Gatsby. He is currently in the works of rebuilding his home and it is turning into a museum of hand-crafted expertise. You can check out his website, tattoos, and other works at caseyo.com.
