He works with recycled materials incorporating a regenerative eco aware theme to his unique and creative art. His website Hubcap Creatures feature sculptures built utilizing hubcaps from automobiles. His creations take on a life of their own and represent sea creatures and animals. Ptolemy’s art has been commissioned by numerous corporations and private collectors alike and you’ll find his art in exhibitions in galleries throughout Europe.
“I don’t care what you do as long as you are doing something.” – Ptolemy’s Father
An experience he had with his brother bringing a gravel barge across the English Channel from Holland to England and realizing anything is possible.
A friend asked Ptolemy to decorate a nightclub with his then hobby hubcap creations. One of the guests asked to purchase some pieces of his art.
