I was so luck to acquire some of piece of Douglas Binder work , luck as i know nothing about him. This and other pieces of his art are comming to the Manchesters Victoria Bath Homeshow Vintage Fair next month. Here is a bit of culture knowage down your lugholes!
He was born in the English city of Bradford in 1941, Binder initially studied at the Bradford Collegeof Art, before moving on to the Royal College of Art in 1961. Painting was his first love within all that the arts had to offer and it was in painting that he found he truly excelled.
He was heavily involved in the arts scene of London in the "Swinging Sixties" and was a regular guest at parties thrown by the glitterazzi of the day. Binder is often seen as the father of pop-psychedelic decor, with the rock group The Beatles being his most famous first customers. Paul McCartneycommissioned him to paint his Knight piano.

💚 @catherinedeveny When was the last time you invested in your creative self When you pushed yourself to create, make, write, play something which forced you to squirm and inch outside your comfy space Loved doing a #gunnasmasterclass today with the super talented #catherinedeveny and critically looking at my creative processes while taking time to think about projects close to my heart. When asked the question, “If you only had 6mths to live, what would you do with your life”, I couldn’t contain my tears. When you are doing your life’s work, days are filled with purpose and joy ... I am clearly right where I was destined to be. Happy, happy days 💚
