Charming Baker has been chosen by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in association with War Child UK to provide the visual focal point for the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. The summit, which is currently taking place in London until 13th June, is the largest ever international gathering held on this issue.
Charming Baker’s contemporary sculptural installations ‘Loves Revolution’ and ‘Faith’s Leap’ were selected for the international summit. Rob Williams, CEO of War Child UK said: “Charming Baker’s sculptures highlight fear as an inhibiting factor in life, both in experiencing issues and in attempting to face them, but his works also stress this can and should be challenged and replaced with hope.”
Charming Baker has also released a new print edition, representing the equivocal dove of peace, with all proceeds being donated to War Child. “I'm thrilled to be even a small part of such a worthy cause,” said Charming Baker in an interview in the Evening Standard.
