Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits internationally. Her work explores the fragility of life, energy-fields, the after-life and other dimensions. Using neon light to express her positive messages and life mantras, she aims to raise the vibration of love and connection in the world.
Lauren is represented by 10 galleries internationally and has created installations at the V&A, Tate Britain, ran an art workshop at Tate Modern and directed the windows of Selfridges.
Passionate about animals and conservation, Lauren is an ambassador for Save Wild Tigers. Her artwork has raised over £50k for charity.
Recent works involve neon, infinity mirror and kinetic sculpture. Her limited edition ‘you blow my mind’ screen prints sold out in just 24 hours. The creations include painted and embellished human resin skulls, animal skulls and sculpted animal heads.
Lauren’s work is inspired by her time spent in the Peruvian Amazon and in 2012 her art career started with a life-changing trip to South America. Lauren joined a mosaic street-art project in Brazil and spent time in the Peruvian Amazon jungle surrounded by dense vegetation and wildlife. She then researched the best place to study mosaic in the world and developed her skills in Venice.
