Our frames are carefully selected and stand out in material quality as wel as design. They’re made of an aluminium profile which guarantees a lightweight yet sturdy base. We offer them in 17 different styles including metallics and woods and even some bright colors. We use acrylic glass which is better, brighter and lighter than ordinary glass and less likely to damage during transportation.


The width of the standard frame is 5 mm (~ 0.2 inch) and the depth is 22 mm (~ 0.9 inch). All frames are also available in a luxury version which come with thicker glass and an additional insert to elevate the artwork, adding an extra dimension to it’s display. The width of a luxury frame is 8 mm (~ 0.3 inch) and the depth is 35 mm (~ 1.4 inch).

All frames are custom made to fit the art print by our professional framer and come with a ready-to-hang suspension system.

Inspiration
A navigator can be used to lead you through life. And what would a navigation device look like if there were no electronics? The message of this work is : "Keep an overview and navigate through life."

Work method
From idea to painting is an extensive and long process. When Peter gets an idea, he starts with a quick sketch, sometimes adding some notes or reflections. When the time has come to work it out to a painting, he starts drawing. Here he elaborates the proportions, the composition, the colors, etc. into a complete concept. For this painting Peter has chosen his daughter as a model. The rest has sprouted from his imagination. For the navigation machine, which was created with oil paint on canvas, he combined a number of painting techniques to achieve the contrasts he had in mind.

Estimated value of the original work: € 5.000,-

about the artist

Meet Peter van Oostzanen

Peter van Oostzanen

At that time it was not done to paint something that came even close to realism, but Oostzanen decided to go against the grain. He sticked to his own ideas and fantasies and developed his signature magical realism style.

‘Nothing seems impossible in Peter's world. His paintings marvel and alienate, but at the same time give you a feeling of recognisability.'
