Stephen Baker by the Pool

10th August, 2017

One of our favourite local artists creates an illusionary new pool-side mural in Perth.

If you’re a Melbournian you might know Stephen Baker from his distinctive hand-painted mural on the facade of the Fitzroy Pool, entitled ‘Pool Parade’.

A past TDF Collect pal and one of our fave artists/pool boys, Stephen has just completed another incredible waterside work, this time in the West! The Melbourne-based painter was commissioned to create a pool mural at Aloft Hotel in Perth.

The captivating work embodies Stephen’s signature geometric style, in a stripped-back palette of shades of blue.

We wouldn’t normally go this far, but kudos to Hotel Marriot International for supporting the work of local creatives – you can also spy art by Perth’s Ben Barretto (*who has a must-visit website*), Anya Brock and Elle Campbell inside the first Aloft Hotel in the country – we hope this is a continuing trend!

For your own little piece of Stephen’s work, suss out his recently released Giclee prints, on his website, here.

P.S We’re super excited to be planning something VERY COOL with the Melbourne-based artist a little later in the year – watch this space.
