Unique sustainable portrait of Robin van Persie (Dutch national team) hand-painted with paint residue on waste wood
Robin van Persie (Rotterdam, August 6, 1983) is a former Dutch professional footballer who played as a center striker, shadow striker, midfielder or winger. He played between 2001 and 2019 for Feyenoord, Arsenal, Manchester United, Fenerbahçe and again Feyenoord. Van Persie is known as a technically gifted footballer and is praised for his passing and kicking technique.
Van Persie played in youth with Excelsior and Feyenoord and made his official first-team debut with the latter in 2002. That same year he won the UEFA Cup with Feyenoord and was named Dutch Talent of the Year. In 2004, he made the move to Arsenal, where he won the Community Shield and FA Cup in his first season. In his remaining seven seasons with The Gunners, he picked up "only" personal titles such as the Premier League Golden Boot as top marksman and that for the best player of the year 2011/2012.
Van Persie left for rival Manchester United in the summer of 2012. In his first season at Old Trafford, he captured the English national title and finished as the Premier League's top scorer (26 goals) for the second time in a row. After the departure of figurehead Alex Ferguson as manager, both Van Persie and Manchester United experienced two disappointing seasons.
Van Persie made his debut in the Dutch national team in June 2005. Of this, he became captain and top scorer of all time in 2013. He represented the Netherlands at three World Cups (2006, 2010 and 2014) and two European Championships (2008 and 2012).

Unique, affordable and personalized art, portraits and gifts on preferably old, used or discarded wood.
We are Gerhard van Dijkhuizen and Colet Scheper. Together we came up with the concept hou2use. Based on a photo we invent, design and create unique, personal and affordable art on wood. We strongly believe in sustainability and therefore we prefer to make portraits of people or (domestic) animals on used or discarded wood.
We love most art on commission. We then conceive and create, together with you and especially for you, a custom-made work of art or portrait on wood.
