Stephen Baker

“Rather than a million lines telling a story, I try to tell it with using 20 good ones or less."


Painter and illustrator Stephen Baker creates abstract paintings of solitary moments, inspired by everyday life in his hometown, Melbourne.

Recognized for his definitive-style line work and ambitious larger scale public art projects –including the ‘Pool Parade’ mural on the exterior wall of the Fitzroy Pool, Stephen Baker’s paintings are geometric and abstract in form. Simplifying the lines, shapes, and colours of each scenes, his work also has a degree of nostalgia and subtle sexual references in it’s themes. His groundwork sketches are often influenced by watching and studying film scenes and photographic compositions.
