Colin Binns is a contemporary artist working in mixed media painting and drawing, based at his studio on the coast of North West England. He explores abstract ideas from ideas of place, memory and myth. This approach has generated a portfolio of strikingly bold paintings using colour, texture and collage to express the ideas.
Prior to working as an artist, Colin enjoyed a career as an award winning designer in multi disciplinary practice and subsequently as a lecturer in art and design. He left fulltime lecturing in 2001 to focus on his personal art practice and has since exhibited extensively in the UK.
