Baker, an alumnus of Bard College and Columbia College, lives and works in both Brooklyn and Berlin. He is an up-and-coming artist with an international presence. His solo shows have taken place at Berlin's Galerie im Regierungsviertel, Prague's Objektiv Gallery, Prague, and Galerie Kaune in Poland. His other exhibitions include Kavi Gupta Gallery in Berlin and the Philadelphia Center for Photography. He is also one of the cofounders of The White Room Art Gallery

Baker's RH Contemporary Art exhibition features a series of works that question the very nature of how images are created and what images are actually for. He uses multiple mediums (painting, photography, and performance) together to create organic forms that have a sort of rhythm. The monochromatic series uses materials like digital inkjet prints, tape, and sandpaper. To make these pieces, he literally uses his body to wrestle with them.
