Sculptures by Nijel Binns

Nijel Binns is accomplished in portrait sculpture, and painting in the realist tradition. His artistic expression also includes three published books on the martial arts, a Screen Actors Guild/AFTRA membership for stuntwork, and a motion picture fight choreographer of five films.

Nijel Binns was born in Battersea, England in 1956 to African and Jamaican parents. He became a United States citizen in the mid 60’s. After his introduction to painting and sculpture at St. Benedict’s Preparatory and Seton Hall High schools in New Jersey, Nijel continued his education with independent study of great works of art. He received professional mentorship under master sculptor Felix De Weldon (best known for the Iwo Jima Monument), as well as mentorship under the senior African American sculptor Ed Dwight.

Nijel’s skill as a portrait sculptor was first acknowledged with a commission to sculpt pop icon, Michael Jackson in 1990 for the “Top Selling Artist of the Decade” tribute. Also that year, Nijel received a commission from Motown Records to create the gold plated, Maasai Princess bronze sculpture for singer Stevie Wonder.

Additional portrait sculptures followed including a wax portrait sculpture of the late astronaut Colonel Ron McNair for the Great Blacks in Wax Museum in Baltimore, MD, as well as the only life-sized bronzed sculpture of the famous child actress Shirley Temple for Fox Studios. There is also a life-sized bronze busts of Los Angeles’ retired Urban League President John W. Mack for the Los Angeles Urban League Headquarters, and a life sized bronze bust of Councilman retired Nate Holden for the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles.
