Jimi Hendrix

In my teens, I was lucky enough to see Jimi Hendrix live and the whole experience had a profound effect.  Luckily, I realised fairly quickly, I would never be able to play the guitar like him!

Best songs for JB were:

Hey Joe, The Wind Cries Mary, his version of Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower and of course Purple Haze.

Jeremy Baker studied at Bath Academy of Art (part of Bath University) under the tutorship of amongst others, Sir Michael Craig Martin. (Famous for teaching Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Gary Hume and many others.) Leaving university with a BA in Visual Communication.  His career began in art and design.  First in graphic design, then publishing and finally advertising, as an art director for various agencies, before finally setting up his own agency. There, as Creative Director, he won many advertising creative awards (including 3 Clios) over the next 15 years for a wide variety of clients.  After selling the agency, he has been dedicated to creating contemporary art ever since.
