Blake Lavergne is a self-taught artist originally from Louisiana and currently residing in California. He creates mixed media Dark Surrealism using any tool or supply that he can get his hands on. Blake’s Dark Art focuses on contemplation of the human condition and death while expressing the struggle of grasping the vastness of the outward universe while trying to simultaneously cope with the inner universe that is our imagination. His art serves as catharsis for mental illness; he truly believes he would not be alive if it were not for his creations. He has published a book of art and poetry, entitled Exorcism of a Poet.
