Peter Heard

All Artists Gallery

Peter Heard is a Londoner and an entirely self-taught artist, who is well known for his graphic compositions, bright colours and minute attention to detail. He started painting in the early 1970s, and became a leader of the British naïve-modern school with Beryl Cook and Martin Leman at the Portal Gallery in London’s Bond Street, a gallery world-famous for the ‘naïve modernist’ genre.

Now his work is collected by the rich and famous, including Jackie Collins, who bought nearly a dozen of his paintings while they were being unloaded outside a gallery in the West End of London. Nick Mason, drummer of the legendary rock band Pink Floyd has one wing of his mansion full of Peter’s pictures.
