Contemporary British Painting
‘Contemporary British Painting’ (also known as CBP) is an artist led organisation which explores and promotes current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications, and by placing paintings in art museums. The group is run entirely by volunteers from within the membership.
We founded the The Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016, an annual prize promoting the best of contemporary painting produced in the British Isles.
Our members represent some of the most exciting emerging and award winning painting in the UK today and include John Moores Prize winners Paula MacArthur, Nicholas Middleton and Mandy Payne, Jonathan Vickers Award winner Natalie Dowse, British Academy awardee James Quin, Griffin Prize exhibitor Matthew Krishanu, Venice Biennale exhibitor Phil Illingworth, and Joanna Whittle, winner of the Valeria Sykes Award at the New Light Prize.
