Ben Baker is a fine artist who has spent the majority of his life residing all over the southwest of England. Enjoying the sense of nostalgia and the aesthetic surrounding the environments he lives in, Ben draws inspiration from the Cornish coastal communities and the various creatures living there.
Specialising in wire sculpture and automata, Ben uses several grades of iron wire to transform his fluid single-line drawings into tangible creations. These wire creations are handcrafted to either stand still or can be made to come alive using cranks, levers and treads of nylon. Adding a level of intrigue and play to his artwork.
Renowned for: Three-dimensional illustrative sculptures.
