CrazyRedBeard, aka Jon Blake – Live Painting PhanArtist

Jonathon Blake, also known by his stage name CrazyRedBeard, is an independent artist that currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia. Largely self taught, Blake primarily creates paintings in live music settings to many different types of bands up and down the east coast and beyond. Inspired by watching the New Orleans live painter, Frenchy while attending Particle’s late night set at Bonnaroo 2, Blake went home with a vision of attempting this style of creation in his own unique fashion.

Driven by the immediacy of the live music environment, Blake attempts to channel the energy, emotion and feeling of the moment, highlighting an interconnectivity of seemingly unrelated or unrelatable objects. Described by fans as “Dali and a graffiti artist in a blender” and “Picasso on acid,” Blake creates largely abstract, yet formative works that are often highly psychedelic in nature.

Having exhibited in NYC, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania and at festivals all across the country, Blake feels blessed and thankful for the adventure, friends and music that the life as a live artist has provided. He hopes to share his art with as many people as possible and for many years to come.
