Oregon Art Beat

Barber Adam Baker


Barber Adam Baker took up painting to kill time between customers… and then began using those customers as subjects. But it doesn’t stop there; Adam turned his imagination loose, portraying his modern-day customers as 19th-century gunslingers and other western characters. Adam’s novel approach and artistic skill turned this hobby into a real-world career as an artist. He has painted more than 500 portraits to date and his barbershop in historic Oakland, Oregon also serves as a gallery.
