Giles Hughes of Circa-Arts


Giles is a Birmingham based artist, illustrator and collector. Most weekends he can be found searching flea markets and junk shops for hidden gems. Giles is especially interested in vintage ephemera: old magazines, adverts, cards and posters. Anything that catches his eye, from classic motorcycles, old badges and rusty tinplate toys is fair game. Much of what he picks up finds its way into his sculptures, journals, note books and greetings cards. Giles has worked commercially as an author, artist and illustrator, and enjoys painting landscapes and seascapes when the opportunity arises.

Look out for Giles wonderful 2020 Beautiful Birmingham calendar that features 12 original and iconic views of Birmingham, it will make a perfect gift the Christmas! All hand painted and drawn in inks, watercolour, acrylic and pencil – this set of artworks depict the often brutal architecture of Birmingham alongside some of its most beautiful public sculptures and vistas. More information about Giles and his work can be found on his website

Giles will be showcasing his current work alongside an exciting variety of artists over the weekend of Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December at Fletchers & the Kitchen Garden Cafe on York Road, just off Kings Heath High Street.

The Kitchen Garden Cafe is collaborating with Made in Kings Heath this year, and will be holding its annual Christmas Craft Fair and hosting a selection of MiKH artist artists over the Open Studio Art Trail weekend.
