EXPERIENCE / UNDERSTANDING / EXPLORATION
Baron Batch is a revolutionary multidimensional artist, poet, entrepreneur, painter, designer, and community architect based in Pittsburgh.
Being a full-time creative powerhouse the last decade, his artistic practice continues to reach into many unique forms of expression and collaboration, both locally and internationally.
Baron Batch’s art stems from a multitude of inspirations. Subject forms following inspiration from his life, as well as storytelling through immortal mantras.
Through a multi disciplinary mindset, Baron Batch has created unparalleled art, while accruing generational collectors that closely follow the flow of new art pieces and creative endeavors.
His art can be found in curated spaces globally.
Baron Batch is the founder of the creative lifestyle agency Studio AM which was founded in 2014 and first located in the community of Homestead PA.
In 2021 he opened The Residency Gallery Space, which was not only an art gallery exhibiting his works, but also a work/study space for students and creative professionals.
The Residency also served as a creative-use event space as an evolving collaboration with The Southside Works. Visitors to the space could view and collect intentionally accessible art in an environment immersed in creativity. The Residency was to leave patrons with a flow of inspiration, beauty, and creativity.
In 2023 "The Residency Gallery" transitioned into the Physical Headquarters of Studio AM, and served as Barons community facing work studio space where open studio hours were held and workshops facilitated. The space closed in November of 2023, making way for the next chapter in Barons creative and artistic journey.
Baron is also widely known for his FREE art drops, which are a scavenger hunt way of sharing his artworks around the world. Art Drops occur when pieces of art appear in various communities with clues to the location posted on social media, allowing whoever finds them to take one for free! This is a tool to facilitate spontaneous adventure, human interaction, and to energize kindness and inspiration.
Baron's practice continues to unfold after a decade of being a full-time artist, and as the head of the Studio AM Team. There is a lot of art to be shared and many immersive experiences to be had for years to come.
You are invited to share the journey.
ART HAPPENS IN THE MOMENT.
FROM THE VANTAGE POINT OF THE CREATOR OF THE WORK , IT IS IN THE HEART BEAT OF EACH PASSING MOMENT AS THE EXPERIENCE IS TRANSLATED THROUGH MEDIUM / TOOL / MATERIAL / SPONTANEITY AND INTENTION.
THIS PROCESS LEADS TO AN UNFOLDING EXPLORATION OF NOT ONLY WHAT IS POSSIBLE, BUT THAT WHICH ALSO HAS NOT YET BEEN CREATED.
LIKE A WINDING PATH THIS LEADS BACK INTO ITSELF CREATING WHAT IS TERMED A "CREATIVE PRACTICE."
THE CREATIVE PRACTICE IS THE DAY TO DAY / MOMENT BY MOMENT CULTIVATION OF AWARENESS NOT ONLY FROM THE INTIMATE EXPERIENCE OF THE PARTICIPANT, BUT ALSO SIMULTANEOUSLY FROM THE ENCOMPASSING PERSPECTIVE AS THE OBSERVER.
FEEL IT ALL / AND MAKE DECISIONS GOOD.
A HARMONIOUS LIFE / A FILM ABOUT ART AND RELATIONSHIP
YES'S AND NO'S / ONES AND ZEROS. IT CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS THIS. SOMEONE CAN BE NO ONE, WHILE SAYING YES TO THE MUSE, GAINING A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HEART OF EVERYTHING.
I REALLY LOVE TO MAKE ART. I REALLY LOVE TO LET ART MAKE ME.
ITS QUITE POSSIBLE TO BE BOTH LOGICAL AND INSANE IN THE BEST OF BOTH WAYS AT THE SAME TIME AND SPACE.
TO BE HONEST ABOUT THE JOURNEY TOWARDS THE IMPOSSIBLE WORTHWHILE TOTEMS OF LIFE.
A LITTLE BIT OF SCULPTURE WITH THE MIND OF AN ARCHITECT.
A FISTFULL OF SCIENCE, WITH THE PLAYFULNESS OF A PAINTER.
A CHALICE OF TENACITY WITH THE THIRST OF A GREAT BIG WHALE.
A VAGABOND WITH THE SOUL OF A POET.
IF I WAS A MIRROR, I MAY NOT ALWAYS LIKE WHAT I SEE, BUT I'D LOVE HOW TO LOOK, AND DECIDE WHAT TO BE.
LIFE IS SCULPTING. ART IS DECIDING THE HANDS ARE GOOD WHEN TIRED , WHILE WILL IS BEST WHEN TRIED.
