Blake Gildaphish

i call myself Blake Gildaphish. It’s a name that i made up for myself 14 years ago.

I have been an artist for as long as i can remember. In elementary school, i was often identified as “that boy who can draw”. In high school, i was “the gay dude who can draw his ass off”.

Drawing has always been a way to survive for me. A way to survive bullies, loneliness, anxiety, depression and lately, in my adult life, to make money and survive starvation.Painting,

Pirarucu in “Love is All You Need”, 2015.
