Original Paintings by Cornish Artist John Dyer

Read artist information on John Dyer, video, biography and more.

Cornish artist John Dyer is one of the leading contemporary naive painters in the UK. His unmistakable paintings are well known all over the world through his widely published images. It is generally accepted that John Dyer is Cornwall's best loved and best known contemporary artist with his work hanging in the permanent collections of public art galleries and organisations including the National Trust and Falmouth Art Gallery

Many well known individuals and global organisations have recognised the power of his art and have appointed him as their artist in residence including the Eden Project, the National Trust, Sail Training International Tall Ships Races, Banrock Station Wine Australia, Hanbury Gardens in Italy, and United Nations supported NGOs in the Philippines, Costa Rica and Peru. The work that results from these residencies and projects creates a powerful visual resource and engages a whole new audience as well as creating unique contemporary paintings.

Collectors of John Dyer's work include Alan Titchmarsh, Kim Wilde and Toyah Willcox, as well as many thousands of private individuals all over the world.

"There is an innocence and freshness to John Dyer's art that follows a tradition in Cornwall that includes the work of Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, Fred Yates and Bryan Pearce. Rather than trying to record what he sees, John sets out to capture the 'essence' of his subject. The 'essence' of seagulls, cats, dogs, bobbing boats, or exploding fireworks communicate far more strongly through John's brushstrokes than they would if drawn more traditionally. It is this ability to capture the 'essence' of what is important that seems to appeal to those who have shown great vision and originality in their own careers, such as Tim Smit, Alan Titchmarsh or Kim Wilde."

Brian Stewart. Former Director Falmouth Art Gallery

"My experiences with my paints and canvases have taken me around the world. I have been chased by wild pigs in Costa Rica, swam with piranhas in Brazil, avoided having guinea pigs cooked for me in the high Andes of Peru, shared chilled rose wine with the team of Banrock station in the Australian outback surrounded by sulphur crested cockatoos, watched Lemurs climb up my easel and peep over the top of the canvas, painted as children scour the rice fields for a bowl of food for the night, seen thousand of crabs scuttling for cover on the caribbean coast, shared meals with Alan Titchmarsh, painted with an Amazon Indian and washed up for Kim Wilde ! Each time I explore a new subject in paint I have a visually stunning and unique set of experiences to share and remember. " 

John Dyer.

I have always had immense respect for anyone who chooses to take time to interpret our world for us through painting, and feel especially privileged to have hosted such an inspired artist in our back garden!"  

Kim Wilde. Rock Star and Garden Designer

    Sailing boats, fishing boats, swimmers and seals fill this delightful John Dyer painting of St Michael's Mount and Marazion. The painting has a light and breezy feel to it - a real splash of the Cornish coast that radiates light and colour. A palette of blues creates a perfect backdrop to lime green palms and crisp white sails. Wonderful.
