Tiffany Baker, is a Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based visual artist, working in oil, acrylic, pencil, and digital media. Tiffany has developed a unique style of realist portraiture. Marked by vibrant palettes and considered attention to her subject’s grooming, she merges the somber, the regal and the mundane, bringing forth her subject’s intensity. In her portraiture, Tiffany turns life experiences into emotive visual expressions that re-imagine trauma, embed messages of connection and celebrate her identity as a black woman.
Tiffany has shown in solo exhibitions in Brooklyn since 2016 including “Smilehood and Other Stories, (2016), “Heritage (2017), Light Beings (2018) and the group show “The Armor of Saul” by Unjaded Curations (2019). She was a featured artist at the Arizona Hip Hop Festival, Phoenix, AZ (2019). Tiffany was a top 25 finalist for Ideo’s 2019 Cybersecurity Visuals Challenge.
She has spent the last six years creating illustrative content as a Senior Interactive Designer for CNN. Tiffany’s illustrations can be viewed on Vh1’s Black Girl Beauty, a six-episode series airing weekly.
Baker holds a Bachelor of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute and has trained at School for Visual Arts and The New York Academy of Art.
