Blake McFarland Net Worth
Reportedly, Blake McFarland has no more than $1 million in net worth.
The San Jose native’s interests in art sprouted in his parents’ home and it started when he was 18. His parents had a koi fish oil painting in their rooms. Even though he walked by the painting his entire life, Blake never cared enough to take a moment to take a good look at it.
Blake told his mom that he could make something way better than what they had on the wall and went to buy his first set of acrylic paints and a canvas. He painted with a theme of an ocean. From there on, he started painting and even sold some of his work.
In fact, painting paved way for other mediums of art that Blake was inspired to make including tire sculptors. He started making tire sculptors in 2012 and has created several impressive works over the years.
The very first sculptor that Blake ever made was of a little jaguar. It was a big experiment where he used car tires without realizing they were steel reinforced. He tried five or six commercial saws to cut them and nothing happened. Then Blake picked up motorcycle tires and off-road tires but realized he could work with bicycle tires.
Blake started sharing his works making flyers and running a website. He sold two of his tire sculptors by Vernon Davis’s art gallery. Goodyear tire company that sponsored Cotton Bowl also commissioned for his works.
Among many artworks which he made over the years, the favorite one was of Tommy Trojan, the USC Mascot. He also created bucking bronco and Bucky, the University of Wisconsin Badgers mascot where he used over 300 tires.
Blake has been owning Blake McFarland Sculptures since January of 2015.
