Description

With its rugged look, Toyota FJ40 is not the usual poster queen. But it should be. Because genuine car art is praising not just the shiny red Italian beauties but also significant machines that made an impact in many automotive cultures. And there are not too many cars that had this kind of presence in motoring communities from all over the world.

This Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser poster art is praising the always go attitude of offroading

 

The story of FJ40 Land Cruiser can be traced back to WWII when the Imperial Japanese Army found an old Willis Jeep. They shipped it to Japan and the military forces asked Toyota management to reverse engineer the car and to improve it as much as possible. The commission was successfully completed and after the war, Toyota sold this vehicle as 4×4 vehicle called J20. This is how the notorious Land Cruiser was born. Just like its main competitors like Land Rover and Jeep, it was based on the technical heritage of WWII.

FJ40 was the car that established Toyota as a global brand. With its relatively compact size and trustworthy engine, Land Cruisers successfully made it almost everywhere.

Actually, FJ40 was named J40. It is widely known as FJ because of the F engine it was commonly equipped with. It was another piece of indestructible engineering by Toyota with usual lifespan as of 300 000 miles / 480 000 km. The inline six-cylinder petrol engine was reputable with its torque at low rpm which made it just perfect for off-roading. It was also capable of moving military and fire trucks and was used in Crown-based Japanese police cars.

Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is an off-road classic icon that inspired Adam Ambro to create this epic fine car art poster print, carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

Inspired by the urban landscape, Adam Ambro’s work looks to find beauty in less than obvious places.  Beginning with a recycled canvas of newspaper, layers of pen, marker and whatever else happens to be within arm’s reach are added.  The end result is a highly textured interpretation of some of the world’s most iconic adventuremobiles.

Having grown up in Michigan in a three-bedroom house with a five-car garage, it’s only natural that Adam’s eye gravitates towards the auto industry for inspiration – for both the subjects and the classified ads that served as the original canvases.  With true classified ads becoming scarce, as much thought is now put into composing the newsprint canvas as the artwork itself.  Each canvas is uniquely curated towards the adventure-based subjects leaving much to be discovered beyond the details of the drawing.

Based in Golden, Colorado, Adam is a full-time architect and part-time artist.  He was named a 2013 Cherry Creek Arts Festival Emerging Artist and honored in the 2D category at the 2015 Golden Fine Arts Festival.   Professionally, Adam was recognized as the 2013 AIA Denver Young Architect of the Year and a 2014 Engineering News Record Mountain States top 20 under 40 professional.
