Concord, An Art Opening: Artist Statement:

My name is Joey Baker, I am a 22 year old Fine artist, illustrator and designer living and working in London, Uk. My work focuses on the meaning behind the human experience, investigating life and death and everything in between through the observation of ancient philosophies and art to modern science and maths.
My newest art collection for Concord exhibition follows this ongoing investigation as I experiment with new painting techniques and concepts in an attempt to create a new stem of original visionary artwork.
I have become fascinated with humanities relationship with technology, the synergy of nature combining with machine has lead to humans living in their dreams, re programming their reality and manifesting their imagination. The sharp rise in technology has become a pinnacle point in the evolution of human kind, it has also created new age symbolism for generations to follow in juxtaposition to old religions and traditions.
By combining traditional themes of ancient artwork from various cultures with new age symbolism I am able to show the transition of our evolution, from the similarities to the differences.
You have to know where you’ve come from to know where your headed…..
To fit this theme the work, I have painted with the aid of computer design programmes, combining imagery sourced from my travels with symbols created by our new generations, mapped out electronically and executed traditionally.
