Mike Binzer

+ About the Artist

Mike Binzer grew up in Calgary studying ballet and contemporary dance and went on to dance professionally with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for two years before turning his attention to the visual arts. Through his study of dance, he developed a unique insight into the human body which has continued to guide his art practice.

Mike holds a BFA with distinction in painting from the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) and MFA from the University of Regina and has been honoured with numerous awards, notably the Painting Major Award of Excellence from ACAD and the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship from The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.  His work has been featured in a variety of exhibitions and publications in Canada and the United States where it can also be found in private and public collections.
