Beyer attended the Werkkunstschule in his hometown of Münster from 1924, followed by the Düsseldorf School of Applied Arts from 1925 to 1926. Study trips through Europe took him to Sweden in 1927, where his attitude to the northern landscape was decisively shaped by Ernst Norlind in Landskrona.
Further stops on the study trips between 1927 and 1931 were France with Paris, Denmark and Finland. In 1931 he moved to Berlin, where he opened a studio that same year and joined the German Communist Party (KPD). From 1933/34 he took private lessons with Martin Bloch. In 1935 he traveled to the island of Rügen, where he settled in Göhren. Like many artists of that time, the National Socialists banned him from exhibiting in 1937. From 1939 to 1945, Beyer took part in the Second World War as a soldier in the Wehrmacht. After the war, Beyer lived in Göhren (Rügen, GDR) until 1952, where he was second mayor from 1945.
He opened and directed the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania State Art School in Putbus Castle. Beyer was, among other things, a member of the SED and the GDR Association of Visual Artists, of which he became state chairman in 1950. In 1952 he moved to Stralsund, where he married and had his son Peter in the same year.
In Stralsund he looked after folk art groups at the Volkswerft and gave lectures. He created a large mural for the “Löwenschen Saal” in the Stralsund town hall. He mostly devoted himself to the people and nature of his adopted homeland. From 1972 he worked part-time as a professor at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art.
In Göhren, among other things, a school was named after Beyer.
