This right here is the art of Leo Fitzmaurice, a chap that specialises in taking soggy tab packets and turning them into miniature football kits – and we bloody well love it…

Apparently, the idea first came to Leo (who is neither a smoker or a football fan!) when he noticed a wet cigarette packet on the ground in the shape of a football shirt during his travels, and ten years later he is still making them…

Leo has amassed a vast collection of over 800 of these hand-made shirts from around the world, always using packets he finds on the ground to work with…

If you fancy catching Leo’s ‘Post Match’ (very clever!) exhibition, it’s on display at the Cube Gallery in Manchester until Saturday 20th August, i.e, this coming Saturday…
