Stockport-born artist Chris Gilmour makes things from cardboard - astonishingly detailed life-size cars and more mundane items such as bicycles, typewriters and coffee pots.

Using just cardboard and glue, his 'virtuoso' pieces include an Aston Martin and a Fiat 500 with stunning engine and interior detailing. The cars are self-supporting on their own, erm, wheels, and require no wooden or metal frame.

'Packaging cardboard is, by its very nature, intended to contain but it is then discarded. Gilmour, however, uses it to contain the work's own identity and to highlight the displacement between the original object and the one made in cardboard,' reads the artist's website.

Having just skinned a concept in cloth, perhaps BMW's Chris Bangle should team up with Gilmour for his next car...
