CHAMPIONS LEAGUE INSPIRED FUSION FOOTBALL
Art Installation

One of my early memories of the Champions League is when Real Madrid arrived in town to face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League Final 2002 at Hampden, Glasgow. I remember how everyone around Scotland was gripped by the magic of the Champions League. In fact, myself and my older brother found out where the Real Madrid players were staying and we sneaked into the hotel to get a glimpse of the Galacticos.

There’s an iconic moment in the game that changed everything for me, Roberto Carlos running down the wing and lofting the ball high into the box and Zinedine Zidane beautifully volleying the ball into the top corner. This will be one of the greatest goals of all time but what I will always remember is how mesmerising it was to see the ball travel through the air making the Champions League stars create a beautiful pattern in motion.

Over the years the Champions League ball has evolved, yet the constellation of stars remains an iconic symbol. With this ball playing a special part in most football fans' hearts, I wanted to show the world what I was capable of doing and created this self-initiated Champions League inspired fusion football. This hand-painted one-of-a-kind football showcases the mesmerising Acrylic Fusion pattern whilst paying homage to the dedicated Champions League stars. With every rotation of the ball, a new Acrylic Fusion pattern emerges whilst staying consistent as a whole.
