Father of Man Utd star Van Persie holding Manchester art exhibit
Bob van Persie, an acclaimed artist in Holland for more than 40 years, will exhibit a series of works which have been inspired by his experiences as a football fan.
Using newspapers and magazines, the 66-year-old makes collages of paper figures to create certain scenes - such as the crowd at a football stadium.
He told the Manchester Evening News: "That one big piece with flashlights in that has very little blue - that's more one for the Manchester United people, I think.
"In a stadium, when there is a corner being taken, the people behind the corner start flashing their cameras because they know the camera is on them. That's what moment I have made in that work."
