Welcome to Circa Arts - Birmingham based artist, collector & illustrator
Welcome to Circa – a new home for my latest artwork and treasure hunting finds.
I am Giles Hughes, a Birmingham based artist, illustrator and collector. You can find me most weekends searching flea markets and junk shops for hidden gems. I’m especially interested in vintage ephemera: old magazines, adverts, cards and posters. Anything that catches my eye, from classic motorcycles, old badges and rusty tinplate toys is fair game. Much of what I pick up finds its way into my sculptures, journals and greetings cards. I have worked commercially as an author, artist and illustrator, but my real passion lies in painting landscapes and the city I live in. I hope you enjoy Circa and find something you like!
