Wales Contemporary is a international open competition which invites artists to submit work that is ‘Inspired by Wales’ i.e. by its ancient history, its art history, its heritage, its landscape (rural, urban or political) and its contemporary culture.
Peter Ross is a Welsh artist living in England and currently producing paintings about his childhood in South Wales in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Peter was born in Llanfrechfa, South Wales in 1941 and grew up in Newport. He now teaches life drawing to adults and exhibits his work in galleries in England and Wales.
