Ben Giles' assortment of clever collages make use of classic vintage backdrops. Couples kissing beneath Les Champs Elysees and old wooden boats are disrupted by Giles' modern splices, inserting playful images of octopi on to the weathered scenes.
Giles is a fine art student based in London's Bury St. Edwards district. His work is marked by warm antique qualities, seen in the faded lighting and bygone fashion trends. Most interesting of all is how the old meets the new in his artistic space, no small feat for the budding designer.
Giles' montages are currently available on the Etsy and Society6 pages. Those with a passion for old warm charm will be met with an array of decorative options.
