Last January 2012, we featured UK-based Charming Baker in the magazine, with a wonderful portrait of him with rifle shooting his paintings. This week,  Baker will open his largest ever solo exhibition at Milk Studios Los Angeles. Entitled Lie Down I Think I Love You, it will showcase new work exploring the unpredictable nature of love. It will comprise of 20 paintings as well as prints and sculptures. Baker will also unveil a sculptural installation depicting an oversized plastic toy passenger plane. Never having produced a work on such a scale before, this will mark a new phase in the artist’s oeuvre.

From the gallery: The Daily Telegraph recently proclaimed that ‘Baker has enjoyed one of the swiftest rises the art market has seen in recent years.’ His work commands the attention of some of the world’s most significant art collectors including Damien Hirst, Alberto Mugrabi, Frank Cohen and Harry Blain. It is remarkable that after only seven years of exhibiting his work to the public, Baker has achieved worldwide recognition. In 2010 he had a sell-out show in New York and received a similarly avid reception in London the following year. In 2012 he was chosen to participate in the V&A exhibition Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion in collaboration with acclaimed British designer Sir Paul Smith. His forthcoming and much-anticipated exhibition in Los Angeles will cement Baker’s growing reputation as one of the most dynamic British artists of his generation.

The exhibition celebrates it’s opening on March 21st, 2013
