Baker Overstreet Bio
About The Artist
Southern-born artist Baker Overstreet paints with a close attention to hard contour, line, and geometric pattern. His abstract geometric acrylic paintings are studies in composition, symmetry, and color, contrasting lines, shapes, and bold and muted tones. Influenced by tribal and folk art, Overstreet invents his own vocabulary within his abstractions that is personal but accessible.
Overstreet has exhibited his paintings in numerous galleries including Paolo Curti, Milan; Pilar Corrias Gallery, London: China Art Objects, Los Angeles; Franklin Artworks, Minneapolis; and was recently included in Abstract America, at the Saatchi Gallery, London.
