Born in 1972, his work is internationally collected by an exclusive clientele and has exhibited paintings, prints and ceramics around the world. He has enjoyed a stream of sell-out solo shows and presented his work in art fairs in Basel, Miami, L.A, Tokyo, San Francisco, London and New York. Baldwin set a personal record at Bonhams in February, 2008 when his piece Apocalypse Wow - The End of Everything sold for over $40,000, since then, his works have sold for up record numbers as his popularity grows. And, allow me to add, he is definitely one of the nicest artists I've ever met!Amidst the edgy brushstrokes and sinister themes, symbolism proliferates in Baldwin’s work. From children’s storybook illustrations and images of war to nature & Vanitas, each viewer develops a highly personal response to what they see. The relationship that has been observed between Baldwin and the still life painters of seventeenth century Holland stems from his use of such symbols of life, death and mortality as the flower, the skull, the bird and rotting fruit. Baldwin recontextualizes these symbols, however, making them relevant for modern audiences. You will be highly amazed by the countless details in each piece.
