There are cities, in the UK and around the world, in which art is inaccessible to many residents. Many of these cities are famous for their art and artists, but they fail to include and inspire the wider population.

Swansea isn’t one of those cities. Jeff Phillips, for one, won’t let it be. For years Jeff has told our story through his vivid paintings of Swansea’s industrial landscape and our collective journey through war and peace. And he’s sharing them with all of us.

Swansea MAD are proud to be working with Jeff Phillips to explore and widen access to the history and heritage of Swansea and to support the arts.

Jeff has kindly donated 30 paintings from his Swansea Past, Present and Future collection to Swansea MAD. Purchases of the prints will support the Jeff Phillips Art Scholarship, which provides mentoring and development opportunities to young artists.
