COULD Doug Binder be “the greatest living figurative artist in the UK”?According to Greg McGee, he might well be. “Doug Binder is by any standard a jewel in the crown of contemporary painting, and that’s in Britain, not just the North,” says the co-director of According To McGee, the Tower Street gallery in York, where the Life Story: Doug Binder exhibition opened to a packed preview and healthy sales.”His legacy extends all the way to the 1960s, when he played a massive part in London’s Swinging Sixties scene. His time spent with The Beatles has passed into art folklore. Painting Paul McCartney’s Knight piano must have been a decent calling card for a young Bradfordian, and the dizzying ascent into the glittering cultural circles that followed was, by all accounts, an exciting time with plenty of stories.”
