Born in 1946 in Melbourne, Wellesley Binding attended R.M.I.T Illustration and Design in 1968 and began painting in the same year. He emigrated to New Zealand in 1974 and lives and works in Havelock North where he has been painting full time since 1991.
Scratch & Lose is a collaboration of Skinroom curators Eliza Webster and Geoff Clarke. The show was created to expose young artists Chris Davis (Wintec Media Arts Graduate) and Adam Edwards (current Media Arts student) alongside a mid-career artist that works within a similar theme.
