{ Peter heylands }

Peter Heylands is an international artist. At the age of eight, he took his first drawing lessons at the art school at Ostend, followed by 4 years of artistic training at the municipal art academy of Bruges and a three-year specialisation in paining at the “Académie des Beaux-Arts” in Paris.

At the end of the 1980s, he develops a stage act involving him painting a portrait upside down in only three minutes. This act is so popular that it is shown on television in numerous countries, e.g. France, England, Italy, Germany, Hong Kong and the USA.

In his studio Heylands creates works of art that are sold by international galleries and on luxury cruises. Several of Peter Heylands’ works are the private property of celebrities like Johnny Depp, Sting, Patrick Bruel, Lara Fabian, Axelle Red, Jean Claude Van Damme, Jacques Chirac…
