The Arts Council of Wales' Collectorplan scheme makes buying contemporary works of art more affordable by providing interest-free loans to purchase contemporary art and craft in Wales.
Loans are available for sums up to £5000 with repayment lengths of up to 12 months - all for a deposit of as little as 10%.
A simple example for Mike Jones' 'Man With Buckets' shown above would be:
Picture price £650
- Deposit of £65
= 10 monthly repayments of £58.50 (interest free)
Total repayment = £650

The people and streets of the South Wales valleys depicted by Alastair Elkes-Jones and the late George Chapman respectively.
Alastair was born in Llangollen in 1942 before moving to Mumbles in his early 30s. Painting has been a life-long pursuit that has seen him exhibit widely, whilst also own his own gallery in the early 2000s. Despite decades of successful exhibiting, Alastair embarked on and completed his Fine Art degree in Swansea in his early seventies but his painting technique changed little. His depictions of figures and his local coastline are made through successive layers of paint using both palette knife and brush to form his own expressive blend of texture and colour.
George Chapman was born in London in 1908, attended the Royal College of Art and the Slade School of Art. After visiting South Wales in the early 1950s he was inspired by the coal mining communities and became most notably known for his paintings of Rhondda valley streets. He was also an exceptional printmaker and produced 46 known etchings including the highly collected Rhondda Suite. His work is held in 23 public art collections including the National Museum of Wales and the Victoria and Albert Museum. George died in 1993 in Aberaeron where he had lived for many years.
