Ken Marquis, is the founder of the Landfillart Project .
The 1,041 pieces of rusted metal are actually old automobile hub caps from the
1930’s through the 1970’s. Each hub cap, after being cleaned and primed,
is affectionately called a “metal canvas.” Although most “metal canvases”
have been transformed by the artist using oil or acrylic paint, some have been
weaved on, glued or screwed or welded to, or made into fine sculpture.
Above is my metal canvas created using acrylics, some charcoal, colored pencil, and india ink with a clear coat to protect the work.
