If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Drawing, Painting, Performance, Sculpture
Richard Heley was born in Bedfordshire, but grew up in Australia where he graduated as a specialist art and craft teacher. As a fine art painter, poet, storywriter, international poetry performer and live performance painter, he has worked in galleries, schools, clubs and other events in the UK, Australia and the USA. His paintings are represented in collections around the world. A wonderful performance poet with a whacky sense of humour.
About my artwork
The Art Critic Nicholas Usherwood said of Richard’s paintings that they were “work teeming with rich and exuberant imagery, bold, painterly touches and brilliant colour – Gauguin meets Chagal meets Sidney Nolan – with English restraint and reticence nowhere to be seen, thank goodness …”
