Charming Baker at Covent Garden
I first saw Charming Baker’s work on the Cgunit online gallery and immediately fell in love with the collision of decorative and figurative in his paintings. Of course his name has nothing to do with it but does add a certain… bonding.
Acidolatte featured him this week prompting me to revisit his site. I’m glad they did otherwise I would have missed the announcement via his blog of a new show “Everything must go” starting July 8th in Covert Garden. His star seems to be rising. His quiet self-promotion through social media may be about to spill over into the mainstream; gaining notoriety of his use of shotgun as paintbrush. The paintings stand strong regardless of gimmick, so grab this chance to view his work before it becomes dispersed in galleries and maybe catch his printers producing some prints live.
