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.


Kosame is an ideal example of flawless layers applied to a paper. Each of them is clearly distinguishable which creates a compelling sense of depth. In this work, Binnie operates with darker colours, depicting a light shower that might soon be transformed into heavier rain.
