Tire Sculptures

about Blake McFarland

Blake McFarland began his art career painting ocean scenery with acrylics. After a couple of years he longed for something more unique, so he got the idea to combine one of his passions, surfing, with art by painting local Bay Area scenes on surfboards. To expand his artistic resume he also crafted aged wine barrels into wine and glass racks. Inspired by the current “green movement”, it was not until 2013 he finally found his calling in tire sculptures, the most detailed oriented and fondest art pieces he has ever created. It takes over a month to create one sculpture due to the amount of detail put into each piece.

Blake loves being able to be eco-friendly by using 100% recycled tires to make his distinctive tire sculpture art. To see the animals in person is a true visual experience but until then check them out on the tire sculptures page. He also uses 100% recycled natural wine corks to create mural pictures of amazingly detailed pictures or words — between 200 to 4,000 corks in each picture. They have a very natural and sophisticated feel to them that look great in any setting.
