Photos by G. Art by Charming Baker.
British artist Charming Baker has set the art world on fire with his first ever solo exhibition in America at the New York Studio Gallery. Prior to its debut on May 14, 2010, the show had sold out and the opening attracted the art elite. When I saw the exhibit, I was pleased to find that Baker has charmed his way into my life. His paintings juxtapose the simple and the sinister, and each work is guaranteed to, for a lack of a better word, be totally charming. You might not be able to see the detail in the photos below, but often times, Charming Baker has shot multiple bullet holes in the canvas, again blurring the lines of the innocent and the violent. I loved this show so much and as it only runs through May 30, 2010, you should definitely check it out before it’s too late. The New York Studio Gallery is located at 154 Stanton Street (at Suffolk).
