Paul Binnie is a Scottish artist working in the Japanese tradition of woodblock print making. His work is reflective of the shin hanga artists of the early to mid-20th century, employing subjects such as landscapes, tattoos, and female beauties (bijin). He studied art history at Edinburgh University and painting and etching at Edinburgh College of Art from 1985-1990. In 1990 he moved to Paris until his interest in Japanese Ukiyo-e prints took him to Japan in 1993. There he studied woodblock print carving and printing with the master Seki Kenji. In 1998, Binnie moved to London and set up his own studio. Here he expanded his oeuvre to include Landscapes and bijin.
