One man’s junk is another man’s treasure is Ptolemy Elrington’s philosophy. The artist, based in Brighton in the UK, creates incredibly precise sculptures of animals from hubcaps which have been thrown away by their previous owners. His sculptures are of all kinds of animals, from fish to owl to octopus, and are easily recognisable, despite the fact that it is also easy to recognise the materials he used to make them. Ptolemy is even branching out now and using a variety of different materials to make his creatures, using bumpers and other scrap metal. Check out all his work on his website, Hubcap Creatures.
