Currently residing in Santa Cruz California, Blake Foster has been developing his stylistic vision for the past two decades. Emerging from roots in graffiti under the moniker SYDWOX, this self proclaimed muralist broadened his craft and completed a certificate program in visual FX for film with a focus in digital sculpting. Feeling unfulfilled as a mere gear in the machine, Foster left the digital world and returned to the streets as a stencil artist for the people. Along the way, sometime between art activism and dodging the law, Foster discovered the healing potential of entheogens, nature, and the all mighty paint brush. With a newfound passion and self-love the young visionary was able to shatter limiting thought patterns of self doubt and a clear vision of conscious creation was conceived.
Transforming canvas into a window of the mind’s eye, Blake’s artwork aspires to bridge the inner metaphysical realms with the outer natural world. By juxtaposing micro and macro structures of the cosmos his work attempts to reveal the universal patterns and building blocks of our perceived reality. Drawing from dream-like states of consciousness and a limitless imagination, his brush strokes channel spiritual experiences with the divine.
“My intention is to inspire our infinite potential by expressing the ineffable. I aim to paint gateways that give glimpses of dimensions that may exist beyond the limits of our known senses. As a biological bundle of cooperating cells and cosmically charged energy, I seek to paint a visual narrative of our human experience as it evolves through transformation and growth. I hope these visions help expose how interconnected and "one" we truly are, so that our kid’s kids may echo on through the ethers.” -B.Foster
