vita brevis, ars eternus
Welcome to Championship Images, a visual arts gallery
featuring Ardy Arani's unique photographic art and hand-crafted digital
Arani is noted for creating dramatic images of people,
places, objects and sport - in particular large format images for restaurants,
offices, airports and other public spaces where the art on display plays a key
role in setting a theme and creating a visually interesting environment.
From the moment he first picked up a 35mm Retina
rangefinder camera as a kid, Ardy has been exploring the world through the lens
of a camera. He was developing film and printing his own images before he
was a teenager, and over the years has traveled extensively to capture
evocative images from locations around the world. Today Arani works
exclusively in a digital medium, both in capturing images, producing fine art
prints and ‘painting' on digital canvas.
Ardy is noted for vibrant colors, dramatic perspective and
bold composition. His large-format panoramic art blends his original
photography with handcrafted brushstroke techniques, ‘ala prima' style,
resulting in some of the most dramatic, vibrant and unique images ever
seen. Arani's ‘DigiRealism®' style of handcrafting images from his
original photography has been awarded a trademark by the US Patent and
Trademark Office. Arani has also been recognized by NASCAR and the Indy
500 as an Officially Licensed Photographic Artist. His large-format
handcrafted motorsports art is particularly prized by collectors, and is
featured on display at major race tracks and in many drivers' personal
