"When I first was contacted by Ken Marquis from Landfillart project and he asked me if I wanted to participate in this project to collect old hubcaps that litter in the environment and paint on them, I first thought it was a strange idea. How to paint on the old hubcaps? I have always found it fun to paint on other materials than just canvas but have never tried to paint on metal. I have just painted on glass and pieces of wood before. But the more I thought about it and then saw how much the hubcaps that actually exist out there in nature so there was no reason to hesitate. As a true environmentalist, I have always tried to learn as I live. I took up the challenge and painted horses in gold on an old Volvo hubcap from the sixties. I called it 'The golden edition of Swedish horse power'."Lena Tedeblad
