Charming Baker

Charming Baker Charming Baker: the artist who shot to fame Charming Baker has seized the attention of the art world through the unconventional medium of oil and buckshot. An industrial estate in unglamorous Deptford in south-east London is not the first place you would go looking for one of Britain’s most talked-about artists. But Charming Baker’s story does not follow predictable patterns. Baker has enjoyed one of the swiftest rises the art market has seen in recent years, and has employed unconventional methods in the process – including shooting his work with a gun. The first thing that greets you as you enter his studio is an air rifle, hanging on the wall. It is just a tool, he explains; like a paintbrush, it is simply another way of making marks.
