British artist Charming Baker studied at Central St Martins and has gone on to exhibit internationally from LA to New York and London with a recent show at Sotheby’s S2. His work has been met with critical acclaim in GQ, the Telegraph and the Evening Standard. Although Baker has produced sculptural pieces in a wide and varied choice of materials as well as many large-scale and detailed drawings, he remains primarily a painter with an interest in narrative and an understanding of the tradition of painting. Known to purposefully damage his work by drilling, cutting and even shooting it, Baker intentionally puts in to question the preciousness of art and the definition of its beauty, adding to the emotive charge of the work he produces. He’s a multifaceted artist as he continues to make work for charity, has collaborated with Paul Smith and is a presenter for the Art Show.
