Studio visit with painter Joe Henry Baker

“Painting is a form of meditation for me … It’s a moment of peace and calm where I can truly connect with the creative side of my brain, no distractions.”

For New York-based artist Joe Henry Baker, inspiration comes in various forms – from a chair to a photograph to an outfit, as he says, “Absolutely anything inspires.” Here, the London-bred painter grants us a look inside his Chinatown studio and talks about the process behind his work.
