ARTIST Darren Baker is exhibiting his works at the world’s biggest art fair.
Six of Darren’s pieces – three charcoals of New York City and three pastel life drawings – are on sale at Scope New York 2010.
The event, regarded as one of the world’s most important exhibitions, has been taking place at the Lincoln Centre, New York, since Thursday. It ends tomorrow.
While Darren, 33, of Meltham, has been unable to take the trip, an agent stateside will be attempting to selling his work at the fair.
He was approach by Opus art gallery, Newcastle-upon-Tyne who agreed to represent him in New York.
Darren said: “It’s the biggest art fair in the world. It’s where all the emerging and established artists exhibit, so it increases your value.
“Ideally I would have liked to have gone, but it’s hard to organise so it’s better to go through a dealer.”
Darren has produced commissioned works for the Professional Footballers Association, the Bahrain royal family and Olympic medallist and champion boxer Amir Khan.
