Who Is Bucko?
I am a multidisciplinary artist based in Ottawa, Canada. I perform synth-based electronic music using an iPhone and a custom sound system mounted on my power wheelchair. I’ve created massive abstract acrylic paintings on raw canvas spanning up to seven by nine feet. My name is Chris Binkowski and I sign my work as Bucko.
What Does Your Support Pay For?
Your support helps me to pay for audio equipment, recording costs and art supplies. It also allows me to hire the studio musicians, producers, assistants and caregivers that enable the creation of my art.
I have Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy and use a ventilator to help me breathe. I require twenty-four-hour care to live on my own.
What Do Patrons Receive?
Depending on their reward level, patrons get regular updates about what I’m working on, access to previews of my music, a digital painting and an invitation to a monthly livestream.
