Beep International Painting Prize

‘Beep’ (Biennial exhibition of painting) is a showcase for international contemporary painting organised by the Elysium gallery in Swansea (an artist-led enterprise), and currently on tour throughout Wales. It includes work by artists from countries including Romania, Spain, the US, Switzerland, South Korea, Ireland, England and several from Wales.
