Bob’s art career has spanned some 40 years, including time studying at the Royal Academy, The Hague, and the Arts Academy, Rotterdam. Inspired by the many crowds and terraces he experienced while bringing up his son Robin who lived with him from the age of five, Bob’s work is created from materials discarded by others, bringing them alive through the creation of paper dolls which are then collated together on hard board, hardened with Paverpol and finished with acryl varnish, liquid gloss, etc.

Much of his work is created from newspapers and magazines collected from all around the world. The paper is used to create the faceless people which are gathered to build a scene such as the stands of a pulsating stadium. Too far away to recognize faces or to point out the individual. “The perception of a roaring crowd, is like a breeze through cornfields. It sends shivers down my spine,” Van Persie says. Sometimes, however, when little colour is used in his work, the silence is overwhelming.

Gallery owner Richard Goodall comments: “Bob’s work is truly original. The passion that Bob displays when creating his unique pieces is inspiring and we are honoured to be presenting his first UK exhibition”

The opening of the exhibition will be a special private view with the artist – get intouch for an invite to the strict RSVP only event
