Greetings from the frozen north
In the frozen landscapes of the Arctic Circle, nature is indifferent to the hustle and bustle of city living. The animals of the icy wilderness, like people, appreciate the stillness and awe-inspiring beauty of this environment. It is unforgiving, but at the same time, it brings out all the best qualities in those who dare to enter its glacial realm. Snowy scenes form a magnificent background to the lives of animals large and small. These include bears, sharks, birds and foxes, just to mention a few. The lonely polar bear surveys his icy domain with cool composure. A wolf howls to his distant comrades, signalling his hunger as the long winter night begins to fall. Some tiny penguins shelter from the icy blast, huddled together for warmth. The exquisite quality of a canvas print brings you directly into the presence of these majestic creatures. They remind us of the bonds we share with all of the world’s species, as each creature adapts to its surroundings in unique and clever ways. Who could fail to be impressed by the eagle’s predatory gaze? How much love does the orca mother give to her little calf? Even a jellyfish floating in the eternal darkness of the deepest oceans has its own delicate kind of beauty. Wherever you look, there is an exuberance of colour and form. An elk in profile against the northern sky is just one of the many images that will capture your imagination. A canvas animal print reminds us just how wonderful the gift of life is. Every creature has a place it regards as home. One of these images on your wall transports you to the frozen north for just a moment, and brings you closer to the natural world. You can forget the stresses and strains of your busy human life and share in the eternal beauty of these magnificent creatures of the north.
From Africa with love
Many people are also inspired by the heat and passion of Africa. The sun is strong and the colours are rich and deep. Magnificent savannah landscapes are filled with big cats, antelopes and other animals. The combination of art and nature is hard to resist. A stylised zebra against a fresh, orange background brings contrast and colour into any room. Would you prefer something quiet and reassuring? A gentle giraffe poses coyly for her portrait in the classic black and white genre of photography. Or a pensive owl turns his gleaming, golden eyes towards you, drawing you into his twilight world. Inspiration can be found in birds and butterflies, fish, apes and all kinds of domestic animals too. You will not fail to be intrigued by the questioning look of an adult gorilla, or an imagined, dreamy landscape of dinosaurs and primordial forest. A canvas print brings each of these characters to life, adding vitality and depth to any indoor space. Some portraits represent our closest friends and companions in the form of a dog, or a horse, while others focus on the awe-inspiring power of the big cats and other predators. Friend or foe, animals will always catch our attention. Some memorable animal images are monotone, bringing out the elegant forms and subtle camouflage of the animal world. Others are brightly coloured, celebrating the brilliant blue of the peacock or the striped exuberance of the clown fish in tropical waters. These images are a source of inspiration when they are made into a high-quality canvas print that is designed to enhance your domestic or work environment. Celebrated photographers provide some of the most inspiring animal images, but there are also some stunning paintings, drawings, sketches and collages from artists and graphic designers. Most animal images just speak for themselves through the arresting nature of the portrait form. It is as if you enter the world of the animals, and understand at first hand the way they see the world. The reflection of a swan on the water, or the glint of the sun from the depths of the ocean, for example, will give you a new perspective on the world. There is no end to the rich diversity of animal life on our planet and the inspiration that we gain when we appreciate their beauty.
