Bio

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.

She is an experimental artist whose practice expands across multiple disciplines and mediums to address the vastness of the universe. Conceptually grounded but also aesthetically striking, her work involves making the unseen seen.

Baker’s visual style is often built around either emitting or reflecting light. Many of her pieces directly reference the frequencies emitted by astronomical bodies, as well as those attributed to plants, human organs and chakras.

A sense of mystery and emergence - of connecting with something beyond or much bigger than our own immediate world - pulsates throughout her work. 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 works are held in collections worldwide.
