There are many hubcap artists out there, but I want to introduce you to three of my favorites. Their styles differ dramatically, but all of them upcycle the found or discarded metal wheels as backgrounds for their hand-painting.
Unfortunately Skreative’s website is very vague when it comes to information. Written in the first person with the screen name luv2tri, they neglected to list their real name or any pertinent info. That said, the blog seems to have been abandoned but the hubcaps featuring birds and sea creatures are still posted. From what I can glean, these lovely personal projects were created as gifts for friends.
