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.
Asa no Ran was inspired by the kacho-ga (images of flowers and birds) prints in Matsu Gallery. He created two versions - two completely different colour schemes - of the print in a hosoban format. Morning orchids seem to be softer and more traditional, yet the centres of the flowers add intensity and match the bokashi (gradation) background.
