Robin Van Persie – ‘RVP’ – 1.7 metres width by 1.7 metres height x 9 cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

I felt I had to paint him after what he had achieved in his first year with my favourite team, Manchester United. He is the epitome of the perfect footballer and my sons and I think he is truly brilliant and destined to be one of the greatest signings for United. I like the fact that he is so fresh in United’s history, and it is therefore very rare to find any paintings of him worldwide. It is a different style, using three colours and captures him at his best moment, just after he has scored.
