Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits internationally. Her work explores human connection, metaphysics and the expansiveness of the universe. Lauren's signature neon works portray the power of energy through her poetic typographic and celestial chakra artworks. Passionate about environmental issues and sustainability, the artist uses light to express the 'secrets of the universe' and aims to raise the vibration of love and connection within the world.
Baker poses a direct question: Do you want to change the world with me? ‘It’s Time’ challenges the viewers perception, encouraging them to consider their individual, environmental impact upon Earth. A sense of unity is underlying, suggesting that if we make the conscious decision to form an alliance and change the world together, we can move closer towards creating a sustainable future where humans and nature live in harmony.
One of her most recent collaboration was for Frieze Week, when Baker collaborated with BMW Culture X Frieze to launch public light art ‘One Thought Changes Everything’, on October, 2020.
Her large scale celestial public art installations have been commissioned in the UK and as far as the Middle East. Most recently, sculptures - inspired by the frequency of the Sun and the Moon - both at 4 metres tall, were placed in a Unesco Protected World Heritage site in the desert (Mar 2020).
Commissioned by Croydon Council to create a 7.5-metre neon across a bridge (2017), Lauren's neon typography is renowned for bringing hope and joy. She has created installations at The V&A, Tate Britain and Tate Modern and her work are held in collections worldwide.
Lauren Baker, born 1982, from Middlesbrough, UK. Currently lives and works in London.
