AluminArte™ Indoor/Outdoor Media


Cotton Candy Squared, 16 x 16 square AluminArte Frame to Edge piece

Taming The Sun and award-winning Photography Artist Kevin Sibbitt have exclusively chosen the patented Image Wizards AluminArte glazed aluminum panels as the only authorized media for all its single & limited edition pieces available in our gallery store.

Each Taming The Sun AluminArte piece purchased from our gallery store is crafted by hand with great care at Image Wizards in Lexington, North Carolina, where Roger Laudy's specialized printing company first invented his patented dye-sublimation printing process back in 2003.


With the crisp Frame to Edge viewing lines, luxurious dye-sublimation inks, and the durable glazed finish of the AluminArte media, our Taming The Sun single and limited edition pieces are specifically designed to provide a lifetime of indoor or outdoor viewing pleasure that are a perfect fit in today’s modern indoor/outdoor design spaces.

Roger leveraged his 40 years of printing experience and began innovating a new process of using dye-sublimation inks to imbed high-definition imagery into the surface of customized sheets of white aluminum with a resulting durable clear glaze finish that beautifies, seals and protects the AluminArte piece for a lifetime of indoor or outdoor viewing enjoyment.

Their captivatingly rich and color accurate AluminArte pieces are the fruit of Roger's industry experience, innovation and commitment to excellence. His AluminArte pieces provide the world of art with a completely new, modernized high-definition artwork media that offers a lifetime of exceptional viewing pleasure for those who choose to own one, and a memorable viewing experience for those who are lucky enough to encounter one.

The AluminArte media is as long-lasting as it is beautiful to view, uniquely offering both indoor or outdoor placement options without the usual fear of the artwork fading, discoloring, cracking, or peeling over time.
