Charming Baker's "Lie Down I Think I Love You"

It is remarkable that after only seven years of exhibiting his work to the public, Baker has achieved worldwide recognition. In 2010 with the backing of Magnarella he had a sell-out show in New York and received a similarly avid reception in London the following year. In 2012 he was chosen to participate in the V&A exhibition Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion in collaboration with acclaimed British designer Sir Paul Smith. His forthcoming and much-anticipated exhibition in Los Angeles will cement Baker’s growing reputation as one of the most dynamic British artists of his generation.


Pat Magnarella, a highly respected music manager along with Roger Klein, a former major record label Artists & Repertoire person, conceived of a “disruptive art business model” in which they neither strived to be “agents” or gallerists but instead to insure that their clients would be protected, nurtured, marketed and most of all branded internationally.  Magnarella was quoted in the Telegraph saying, “We aren’t interested in just having the art world knowing about our artists…we want the whole world to know about them.”  Their clients include urban artist Logan Hicks, who will have a “pop-up” gallery show in Los Angeles in March 2013, Chris Levine, whose iconic portrait of the Queen currently hangs in Buckingham Palace, Richie Culver, whose art was just named by GQ Magazine as “ONE OF THE 100 BEST THINGS IN THE WORLD TODAY,” and English fine artist Charming Baker, whose “pop-up” gallery show in London last year generated over $4 million in sales on opening night.  Magnarella and Klein have been interviewed by the BBC, SkyNews, The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Evening Standard, GQ Magazine, Elle, W and more.
