Bintener was born in Luxembourg. She received her Master's degree in Plastic Arts from the University of Human Sciences, Strasbourg, France. She graduated with a thesis: The Human Body, an Instrument and Canvas of Plastic Expression. She has worked with choreographers, producers, stage-directors, and photographers in Germany, France, Austria, Hungary, and Luxembourg.
Gilbert Bastian states, "Bintener considers drawing on a living body as a way of giving shape to her vision of life. Painting the body -- it becomes a place of tension, a place where being and universe merge, where art and life come together. As each body is unique, she has to work very gently with this initially bare artistic support. She must also pay careful attention to the immediate entourage the body is going to grow in. Lydia Bintener has succeeded in bringing out the pictorial elements of her art as well as the more spectacular aspects of putting bodypainting onto the public stage. Video clips and public performances testify that bodypainting tries to achieve a work of art that is complete-- where body, visual image, music, space, and movement harmoniously merge."
