Newspaper football crowds by Bob Van Persie

He makes what he wants, he makes what he wants. Bob Van Persie, he makes what he wants.

Yep, this is the work of Manchester United striker Robin’s dad. Bob Van Persie is an artist who specialises in creating crowds of people – often football stadium crowds – from pieces of old newspapers.

Using just paper, glue and varnish, he creates some hugely impressive 3D collages.

As a man who has probably seen his fair share of electrifying football crowds over the years, the stadium atmosphere has clearly had a big impact upon him.

He said: “The perception of a roaring crowd, is like a breeze through cornfields. It sends shivers down my spine.”
