Juventus striker Nicklas Bendtner says that he owns a number of paintings and sculptures and enjoys the work of graffiti artists.

Juventus striker Nicklas Bendtner has revealed his passion for art and says that he likes graffiti artists.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Italian champions on loan from Arsenal in the summer, says that he has seven paintings and three sculptures in his collection.

"Some of my friends in London are in the art world and they introduced me to it slowly," he told the Daily Mail. "There are always new things happening in that world, new artists coming up, so it's something you can never get tired of, if you understand what I mean.

"The new thing I like are the graffiti artists, I think they're quite interesting. I have seven paintings and three sculptures which I'm really proud of. My favourite is probably the first one I bought which is the Damien Hirst.

"I love it. I can look at it all day long. It represents me in sort of a way because I can see something of me in it. That keeps me looking at it and finding new things."

Bendtner is part of the Juventus squad that will host Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.
