Lev Rosenbush Explores Football Fandom Through Pottery

“Classic football shirts shape soccer culture, as well as global street fashion.”

Bruised banana. Barcelona in Kappa. That United away kit. Over the past 30 years, the colors and patterns of football shirts have become just as iconic as the clubs themselves. Lev Rosenbush is an artist, model and athlete who is one of the many people who took inspiration and recently created a series of work titled Football and Fandom Reimagined: A Ceramic Exploration.

Based between London and Brooklyn, Lev first explored pottery while simultaneously playing goalkeeper in high school. He would carry the passion for both in college as the intersection of football, fine art and fashion continued to blend. “Classic football shirts shape soccer culture, as well as global street fashion,” Lev said in a statement. “Staggeringly loud patterns plastered across club jerseys, such as those referenced in my own work, took off during the early 1990’s. In this first ceramic collection, I draw inspiration from that period of bold color, pattern, and outstanding design.”

For this particular exploration, Lev worked with Classic Football Shirts and photographer Macy Kerrigan on a retro-inspired series that spotlights some of football’s greatest designs. While the series is just a case study at this stage, expect to see big things from Lev and this ceramic series soon.

For more on art, a new documentary explores the origins of Adam Himebauch.
