Description of Medium
Don Baker is working on a new art form: Rusting metal unto canvas. He takes discarded metal objects and gives them new life through the process of rusting metal onto canvas. The uniqueness of this art form is taking three dimensional objects and recreating them to a two dimension impression while still maintaining the integrity of the original form.
