James Bingham was born in Belfast (1925-2009). He spent thirty years in London working as a signwriter with his brother. In 1967 he returned to Belfast where he met Dan O'Neill. They became friends and from 1968 James worked with Dan in his studio until his tragic death in 1974.
Since then, James Bingham has gone from strength to strength. Now in his Eighties, he still works ten hours a day in his studio as he refines his unique artistic genius into paintings full of joy, narrative sophistication and original colour palettes. A true original.
