Bina is a London based painter and printmaker born in Kenya. Nature, textures and colour have strong influences on her work.
Translating her inspiration from natural and urban environments using cold wax painting techniques, printmaking and mixed media, she often chooses to use hard surfaces, which allow her to use a more diverse range of materials, tools and techniques to create and reveal undertones. Through a process of continual layering, building and deconstruction, incorporating indigenous materials, a surface is established to echo memories of a place.
Her work conveys a sense of contemplative abstract familiarity.
