Buckeye Blake’s experience as a working cowboy gave him firsthand knowledge of western subjects. His great-grandfather was a pioneer breeder of quarter horses, and Blake grew up traveling the rodeo circuit with his father. His paintings and bronzes exhibit a fanciful, graphic style mixed with a taste for pop culture interpretations of western figures. Blake is an eclectic artist who has created labels, posters, silk scarves, furniture, posters, and china. Blake lives in Texas, with his wife, Tona, where they raise quarter horses. Buckeye and his son, Teal Blake, participated in a show at the Cattle Raisers in Ft. Worth, Texas with twelve artists in December of 2011 called “We Pointed Them North,” about Teddy Blue Abbott.
