Wonderful hubcaps creatures by Ptolemy Elrington would be seen below. He wonderfully turns hubcaps into animal sculptures as he knows what he has to do with hubcaps. What he though was perfectly done by him. And his creation in form of these sculpture can be seen. Twelve years was taken by him to recycle them.
I always say that art is beyond limit, boundary and obstacle. Whatever you imagine, whatever you think can illustrate into drawing, painting, illustration and any other art form. UK based artist Ptolemy also did something different. He formed discard hubcaps into fish, bird, animals, dragons and sharks by using scraps metal. He made all the creatures with throwaway car accessories of BMW, Ford, Volvo and Mercedes. He gave a new life to these parts by forming them into sculptures. Each and every part of every creature is perfect and adequate. He said, “I like to work with reclaimed materials to show that what is one person’s junk is another man’s treasure”. To work with gauge was biggest challenge for him. According to him going for too small is mean you’re going to lose material identity. But if you make them large and vast, they’ll look extraordinary and he did so. You can see all creatures made him is large and massive.
He was happy to see an E-mail from the one belong to US (United States). That was utmost moment of his life to know that a man has left his job to just follow career in the innovative trades. “He emailed me a few years ago and told me he’d left his job to pursue a career in the creative industries making bespoke electric guitars”. Said Ptolemy. His wonderful hubcaps creatures are really pleasing, remarkable, and appreciable. I’m sure users will like his work.
