Presented here are paintings, drawings, and woodblock prints by Paul Binnie (b. 1967), an artist who produces woodblock prints utilizing traditional Japanese carving and printing methods. Use the prints tab in the toolbar above to navigate to all artists and other genres or visit recent print additions to see all newly added prints.
Binnie is widely regarded as one of the most important artists working in the tradition of Japanese woodblock printmaking, having trained in Japan for over six years in the studio of a master carver and printer. Stylistically, we feel Binnie has taken up the mantel of the shin-hanga ('new print') artists of the early to mid-20th century. However, technically, Binnie self-carves and self-prints his work, which would suggest he belongs with the sosaku-hanga ('creative print') artists. We resolved the question by giving him his own section here.
