The paintings span Swansea’s industrial history and feature famous faces from around Swansea such as Bonnie Tyler and Sir Harry Secombe.

The exhibition and online shop will give people the chance to learn more about Swansea as well as allow them to buy paintings in print form. Money raised from print sales will fund the Jeff Phillips Art Scholarship which was launched in 2021 and provides a development grant, mentoring, training and support for emerging young artists in Swansea.

Jeff Phillips, the artist behind the project, said: “Early in 2020, I proposed the idea of a project in which I could use my artwork, not only to tell the story of Swansea’s heritage and history but that could be used to create an art scholarship award. The project Swansea Past, Present and Future has now come about with the assistance of Swansea Music Art Digital.”

Geraint Turner, Operations Director at Swansea MAD said: “Swansea MAD are proud to launch Swansea Past, Present and Future, an online store selling prints by renowned Swansea Artist Jeff Phillips. The entire collection, a total of 30 paintings, are currently on display at Swansea Railway Station and proceeds raised from the sale of prints will go towards the Jeff Phillips Art Scholarship.

“Swansea MAD have been working with Jeff for nearly 3 years and are very grateful and proud to be able to put this work together, which will show Swansea through the ages.”
