To understand the world around us, we need to understand the cosmos within us. There are 10 billion galaxies in the observable universe and 250 billion stars in the Milky Way. Here we are, just a tiny speck of dust rotating each year around the sun, as the sun, itself, orbits the Milky Way. We are T-I-N-Y. Yet, our tiny little worlds are so significant in our minds. Meditation is the most powerful tool. It is the gateway from our world to the worlds beyond. As well as being inspired by ancient Greek Astronomy and Cosmology, Portal to the stars is inspired by Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, the idea that time and space are not absolute, and due to this there are many truths, many possibilities and many realities. This artwork is presented as a door to the stars, to the subconscious, to undiscovered worlds, to our fullest potential, representing inner and outer worlds and limitless possibility.


Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits internationally. Her work explores the fragility of life, energy-fields, the after-life and other dimensions. Using neon light to express her positive messages and life mantras, she aims to raise the vibration of love and connection in the world.

Lauren has created installations at The V&A, Tate Britain, ran an art workshop at Tate Modern and directed the windows of Selfridges.

Passionate about animals and conservation, Lauren is an ambassador for Save Wild Tigers. Her artwork has raised over £50k for charity.

Recent works involve neon, infinity mirror and kinetic sculpture. The creations include painted and embellished human resin skulls, animal skulls and sculpted animal heads. 

Lauren’s work is inspired by her time spent in the Peruvian Amazon, In 2012 her art career started with a life-changing trip to South America. Lauren joined a mosaic street-art project in Brazil and spent time in the Peruvian Amazon jungle surrounded by dense vegetation and wildlife. She then researched the best place to study mosaic in the world and developed her skills in Venice.

Lauren's latest work continues to explore the possibilities of our connection to the Universe and the Cosmos, energy fields and the notion that we really are all made of Stardust. Light remains her main material to collaborate with, whether neon light, diamond dust, mirrors, or glow in the dark screenprint inks. The Art Hound Gallery presented Lauren Baker's solo show 'The Immensity of the Universe' at Moniker, Brick Lane, London, October 2018 which took further her exploration of light - using plastic explosives to simultaneously destroy and give birth to new artworks.
