When I first spotted Chris Baker’s incredible drawings at a convention, I thought they were photographs. Since then, I’ve watched his career go from strength to strength, along with his confidence. This week, one of his dreams came true. Find out what happened when Chris met his musical heroes, The Jacksons.
In part 2 of my ‘Creative Inspirations’ series, where I showcase artists and creatives that inspire me, I interview Sam Baker, mother of the incredibly talented Chris Baker, the 21-year-old Cardiff artist living with Aspergers whose drawings are so realistic they are often mistaken for photographs.
So when I showed her the wonderfully original Totoro portrait by Mike Matola, one of the artists on my ‘Wall art wish list’ for my blank living room wall, she loved it. So much so, she even dusted off her money box (Shock! Horror!), and put her money where her mouth is, asking me to order it from Mike’s Etsy store, LineByLinePosters.
We need to do something with the blank wall in our living room. There are so many options for filling the space: framed prints & canvases; gallery walls; personalised wallpaper; photographs; objects or handmade crafts & prints. So as I go through the decision-making process I thought I would share some of my ideas. In the first part of my series I look at Wonderful Wall art and tell you which 5 artists are on my wish list.
