Paul Binnie (born May 27, 1967) is a Scottish painter and printmaker known for his colourful woodblock prints. He studied printmaking under the master printer of Doi-Hangaten on the recommendation of artist Toshi Yoshida. Binnie has exhibited widely in such places as Tokyo, Paris, London and New York, and his works are in many collections, such as the British Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art. In his works, he skillfully combines Japanese culture with Western ideas.
In the 'Afterglow' print, Binnie used the same blocks as for hashira-e (pillar print) format 'Autumn Sky' and 'Night Sky' (both 2000). Warm colours are combined with the cool ones, creating a peaceful atmosphere of the setting sun.
