Our vehicle is not even 20 feet away from him when this young male suddenly decides to wake up and walk straight towards us. I feel an immediate, involuntary frisson of excitement and a desire to remember every moment. Not often you get to spend moments so close to predators. It is like finding yourself in a lift with someone who is both famous and attractive. You know it’s over soon so you make the absolute most of it. I get 3 shots through the viewfinder of my camera and quickly look up as he walks out of my frame, following his path and trying to take it all in. But although I always force myself to breathe the current moment, most of the time it’s only after coming home that I learn to truly appreciate the uniqueness of certain encounters.

What is dibond?
Your artwork will be printed on matte Fujicolor Chrystal Archive paper and mounted on a 3mm thick Dibond plate (a combination of polyethylene & aluminum).
It can easily be hung without additional costs (such as framing) and includes a ‘floating’ hanging system.

What is acrylic glass?
Your artwork will be printed on matte Fujicolor Chrystal Archive paper, mounted on a Dibond plate, and presented under 3mm glossy UV-coated acrylic glass. The colors are more vivid and there is an extra sense of extra depth. Includes a ‘floating’ hanging system.

We can also frame your 'dibond artwork' or 'acrylic glass artwork' in a wooden frame of choice, please send an email to info@pieaerts.com to request a quote and receive samples.  

Do you offer framed fine-art prints?
Due to the custom-made nature of framed work, framed prints are only available through personal inquiry. However, we can frame each work exactly the way you want. We work with carefully selected types of solid wood, anti-glare ART-glass, and several forms of passe-partouts (matt board). Please send an email to info@pieaerts.com to request a quote and receive samples or read more about framing here
