Darren Baker [Biography]

Darren Baker

A perfectionist who has, for most of his life, been developing techniques to create a form of realism comparable to photography.

This master artists accolades include;

- Official Portrait artist to Her Majesty The Queen 2011
- Official artist to the 2012 Olympic games
- Fine Art Trade Guild Award Winner of Best Artist 2010
- Winner of The Garrick Prize at Christies, London.

Over the years, Darren Baker has produced an impressive portfolio of art, which grace many prestigious public and private collections, including 10 Downing Street, The House of Lords, St James’s Palace and the Bahrain Royal household. His celebrated works are becoming increasingly sought after by art collectors around the world.

Darren Baker has enjoyed a level of success that most artists only dream of. Often working alongside and produced paintings for such star sporting names as Lewis Hamilton, Steven Gerrard, Kenny Dalglish, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and Amir Khan, while his non-sporting portraits include Her Majesty The Queen, HRH Prince Charles and Tony Blair. Darren’s portrait of Pope John Paul II was greeted with a personal letter of appreciation direct from the Vatican.

The Sunday Times described his work as ”Thrilling” and “virtuosic”! This artist is ‘the next big thing’, an investors dream come true. Since Princess Anne unveiled his official portrait of The Queen in 2011 Darren Baker took the art world by storm.


Darren feels he owes his success to the Princes Trust who helped him as a very young artist. Now an ambassador for the Princes Trust Darren has supported the cause and the work they do helping young people, both by holding art workshops and donating pieces of art for fundraising. One portrait alone donated in 2011 raised over £25000 at their main dinner at The Savoy.
