There are a couple of nice interviews with Brighton artists on the old interweb.
One is with Ptomley the chap who makes fish, dragons and octopi out of old car hub caps. If yu have been to the Hop Poles or the Eagle pubs in Brighton then you will be familiar with his work. His pieces are all made from hub caps that he or his friends find discarded on the road.
The other interview is with Pam Glew, a 29 year old artist from Brighton who specialises in making artwork on flags, fabric and old books.
