Blake Chamberlain is an interdisciplinary and interdimensional artist in the living in the Catskills, New York State. The word “surrealism” only begins to describe Chamberlain’s work, as his striking line and color work is evocative of bright psychedelic themes and 1960’s absurdist pop-art. Chamberlain’s distinctive style showcases the transgender community, plays with pop-culture phenomenons, and honors important social justice movements of the 19th century and beyond.
While recently living in the Seattle, Washington area, Chamberlain’s work was featured on the cover of Alternative Newspaper, The Stranger, and he received a grant from Artist Trust for Trans American History, a portrait series which honors American transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary activists. In May of 2017, Chamberlain had the privilege to create a mural for the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY. His work is electric, encouraging patrons to not only see but feel the vibrancy of humans doing incredible work that changed the course of history.
From Augmented Portraits (2015, mind-bending portraits), to the Courageous Individual series (2014, 20th century historical figures) to Social Visionaries Re-Imagined (2013, New York based historical figures of social change), Blake Chamberlain has spent his entire artist career experimenting and revisualizing what it means to challenge the status quo.
Blake Chamberlain’s work is included in private collections both nationally and around the world as a symbol of the emboldened and inflamed human spirit.
