profile

Colin Binns is an artist working in mixed media painting and drawing from his studio on the coast of North West England. His art explores abstract ideas of place, memory and myth and his approach has generated a portfolio of striking artwork, with intensive use of colour, texture, collage and drawing .
Most recent work explores the character, mood and energy of urban townscapes through combinations of drawing, screen print, and colour wash.

Prior to working as an artist, Colin enjoyed a career as an award winning architect in multi disciplinary practice and subsequently as a lecturer in art and design. He left full-time lecturing in 2001 to focus on his personal art practice and has since exhibited extensively throughout the UK in commercial and public galleries.
