Hubcap Art by Ptolemy Elrington


Hubcap art by Ptolemy Elrington: a Viper Fish on Brighton Beach

Artists work in all kinds of mediums.  Christo and Jeanne-Claude wraps buildings, coastlines, and entire islands with nylon fabric.  Others crochet coral reefs.  Ptolemy Elrington uses reclaimed hubcaps.  Yes, hubcaps.  And he creates some awesome marine art out them too.  Viper fish, hammerhead sharks, insects, octopi, animals…you name it:
