Charming Baker and G

When I first saw British artist Charming Baker’s premiere solo exhibition (of what will surely be many more to come) in America, he immediately charmed his way onto my list of favorite artists.  From the name alone, “Stupid Has A New Hero,” I found it impossible not to fall in love with an exhibit whose intended effect is described by the artist as “that slightly unnerving feeling you get when you have your arse patted in public, but you’re not exactly sure who’s patting it.”  Then I saw the works that Damien Hirst has been buying up by the truckload and I was in love.  Naturally, when I met him at the launch of the ultra-fabulous book Beyond the Street, I was super excited to meet this charming man.  He did not disappoint and was extremely cool.  I’d like to thank him again for being so nice to me and for making really great art.  I wish him great success in the future.
