South West Art

Ben Hughes 

Ben Hughes is a self taught landscape and portrait artist. Predominantly painting in oils, he has exhibited widely across the south of England and is a member of the Bath Society of Artists.

When seeing a print of one of his Bath shop front paintings brought in to us for framing we asked him to do some of Sidmouth … these are the ones that inspired him (once the sun came out!). Ben’s Sidmouth shop front paintings & prints are exclusive to us at South West Art.

His prizes include the Davison Award from the Royal Society of British Artists and the Best Emerging Artist Prize and Viewers Choice Award from the Royal West of England Academy. His work is included in numerous private collections including that of Standard Chartered Bank and in 2006 he was selected by the National Trust for their Contemporary British Artists cards.
