Anodised Aluminium Wall Art
'The Ghost from Goose Bay' by renowned aviation artist Wilfred Hardy GAvA
Manufactured in the UK
Our gratitude goes to Wilf, who gave his kind permission for the Vulcan to the Sky Trust to reproduce his stunning image of power and grace, which we have previously displayed on other products.
The Ghost from Goose Bay… is it XH558? We will leave you to decide.
Each Anodised Aluminium Wall Art is manufactured in the UK using a special four colour process for photographic quality images, giving a more vibrant and more metallic effect surface. The stunning piece will enhance any wall of any home.
- Frameless and with minimal protrusion from the wall, the artwork measures 600mm x 450mm x 1.0mm.
- The grade of aluminium is similar to that used on XH558 during the restoration project in 2007.
- Each piece has been anodised to protect it against corrosion, enhance the aesthetic qualities, resist scratching and provide one of the most durable surface finishes available.
Easy to hang with the provided 3M Command Hanging strips, which enable damage-free hanging of your picture and easy removal in the future.
Wilfred Hardy was a British artist and illustrator who, until his death in 2016, contributed many painted pages to Treasure, Look and Learn and Speed and Power magazines. He specialised in painting aircraft. For many years, until the advent of photomontages, he was responsible for the prepublicity posters and covers for RIAT and other air shows throughout the UK.
These wall art prints use a grade of aluminium, J57, which is a guaranteed anodising quality grade specifically engineered so that the finish across each sheet or coil is uniform. Anodising is accomplished by immersing the aluminium into an acid electrolyte solution and passing a current through the aluminium. The process used was DEF-STAN 03-25 / Sulphuric Acid Anodising (SAA) with a special four colour process printing for photographic quality images giving a more vibrant and more metallic effect surface. Producing excellent resistance to UV, solvents and abrasion.
