The artist father of Manchester United forward Robin van Persie will showcase an exhibition of his works in the UK for the first time next month.

Bob van Persie's art is typically based on materials that seem to be of no value to others.

However, his recent works have been inspired by his experiences as a football fan.

One such work features a sea of paper dolls wearing United red.

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."

The exhibition opens free to the public on September 13 at the Richard Goodall Gallery on High Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester and runs until October 5.
