“I feel honoured and invigorated to belong to this Global Association of Hubcap artists. We need to take action on a worldwide level to effectively do something about climate change, world recession, starvation, war and peace…and the Landfillart Project beautifully exemplifies that. As an artist, it is an extraordinary feeling, working with the same briefing on the same, small, round, metallic, canvas, as artists all over the world.”Susan Van Blanken
