Celebrating Rick Baker
More than 400 of the exciting lots waiting to be won owe their origins to the rich body of work created by legendary make up effects artist Rick Baker. Over his 30 year career, Rick Baker worked on a host of iconic movies, creating incredible creatures for films including (but by no means limited to) Planet of the Apes, Batman Forever, Men in Black, The Ring franchise and Gargoyles.
Outside of the movie world, Baker’s work can be seen in a wealth of culturally significant media, including Michael Jackson’s unforgettable Thriller music video and the film Moonwalker.
An Impressive Career, an Exciting Collection
The Propstore auction will be showcasing and auctioning hundreds of items from Baker’s well-respected Cinovation studio; home to much of the artist’s work and much of his craft for many years.
This is the very first time these items, valued at $746,100 (£499,195), will be available to the public bidders, who have the chance to bid for lots from more than 50 productions with no reserve.
