Ptolemy Elrington recycles old hubcaps, transforming them into incredible works of art. Currently based in Brighton, England, the artist has worked a variety of creative jobs including theatre and stage set design.

Elrington concentrates on creating sculpture of natural forms from found and recycled materials. At the moment he is working with a variety of materials including shopping trolleys, scrap metal and car wheel trims which he re-shapes into a variety of life forms.

Ptolemy has exhibited several times in London, also in Brighton, Haslemere, Rutland, Salisbury, Scotland and also in Barcelona, Spain and Athens, Greece.
