Known as the ‘Hubcap Artist’, Ptolemy creates beautiful objects, usually animals and birds, from waste. From hubcaps to shopping trollies, his imagination and skills know no limit.
Inspired by a trip to India, where he witnessed people in poverty applying their creativity to survive, he returned to Brighton to become a full time artist. Also driven by strong ethics, he has made an art out of repairing, reusing and refashioning what we throw away.
Ptolemy will be creating a unique piece for the event from urban rubbish.
He'll also be displaying a number of similar pieces, including his acclaimed dragonfly made from shopping trollies recovered from waterways.
