Barber, Portraitist Adam Baker

Stuff we love: Oakland barber Adam Baker’s customer portraits. Watch for him on Oregon Art Beat, Sunday night at 7.

Barber Adam Baker took up painting to kill time between customers, 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.
