Artist Research – Charming Baker

On the Ghosts of Gone Birds website I came across the fine artist Charming Baker’s work as he was selling prints towards the cause. The fine artist’s work focusses on themes ranging from love and life, to darker focusses of death and despair.

Baker’s work ranges from traditional media and approaches to contemporary mediums and treatments of his paintings,

‘Baker is also known to purposefully damage his delicate painting, including drilling, cutting and occasionally shooting them with a shotgun, intentionally and inadvertently putting to question the preciousness of art, and adding to the emotive charge of the work he produces.’¹
