Mike Heslop's career spans four decades. Having trained at the Somerset College of Art and Brighton College of Art & Design, Mike's natural gift for draughtsmanship became unequalled among his peers. His love of sport and golf and horseracing in particular led him naturally into the world of commission based sporting art where he quickly deveoped a worldwide appeal and reputation.
His globe-trotting career has taken him from lecturer at Falmouth College of Art and Design in the early eighties to Stockholm as resident artist for Studio Frank, to New York and then to Canada. His career has come full circle and he has returned to his beloved West Country to concentrate on his great passion painting the 'Sport of Kings'.
Equestrian Art Ltd are pleased and proud to act as Mike's agent for original equestrian works. His first work for EAL was a stunning oil on canvas of the invincible Frankel, the image of which is shown on his gallery on our website. This work together with a sister painting of Derby and 2000 Guineas winner Camelot have been sold but artist proofs of both are hanging in 4th floor of the Millennium Grandstand at Newmarket racecourse.
Other available work and commissions by Mike include NH legends Big Bucks and Sprinter Sacre as well as Treve 2013 Horse of the Year and winner of the 2013 Prix de L'Arc and Akheed Mofeed, winner of the 2013 Hong Kong Derby.
