Cristiano Ronaldo By Richard Swarbrick (@RikkiLeaks)

I stumbled over a gallery of fantastic footy art over on the Telegraph last week. Banding together under the name of Fantasista, the artists will be having an opening (location TBA) this spring in Central London. You canvisit their website or follow them on Twitter for more details. When available, the artist’s Twitter handle has been included so that you can check out some of their other work.

Known for his gorgeous animations (Here’s  his YouTube channel), Richard Swarbick (@RikkiLeaks) had several pieces in the gallery.
