Ford GT Heritage Image - Now Available!
The Winning Heritage of Ford Performance
Three Generations of Ford GT Road & Race Cars
Image by Anthony Ross Tyler.
For this year, we selected Ford Performance, and specifically the Ford GT. However, we've not limited ourselves to the current Ford GT, instead, we're focused on all three generations of cars... in both road and race trim. As we were researching Ford GT images, we were unable to find another image of each of the three Ford GT generations (60s era, '05 and current), let alone in both race and road form. So, the team pulled together to attempt the impossible... could we assemble Artomobilia Alumi and Artomobilia partners like Ford Chip Ganassi Racing and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum to capture one of the most distinct Ford GT Heritage images to date?
Next, how to best capture it? If you follow Artomobilia, you know that we commission artwork each year that highlights our featured marque or automotive theme... Artists like Bill Patterson, Marijan Pecar and other recognized local, national and international artists have captured the art and design of the automobile featured against the Arches of the Carmel Arts & Design District.
While water colors or oil and canvas have historically been our medium, this year we want to capture the exacting detail of each car, comparing and contrasting more than 60 years of automotive design heritage and motorsport legend. For that, we sought out Anthony Ross Tyler, one of the most well-respected commercial automotive photographers in the industry. His unique image composite and lighting techniques perfectly expose each and every detail of the five automotive legends.
Unlike in years past, we are offering 67 high-quality prints of these unique image. We'll offer three versions of the image in two separate sizes on aluminum, Fuji Pearl Pro or Kodak Endura paper.
For 2018, Artomobilia is making available a exclusive run of seventeen (17) prints of the 36" x 24" image reproduced in breathtaking detail on on Aluminum with .5" steel posts. This exclusive image will feature all five cars with headlights peering through the fog. This image will arrive at your door flat-packed, not rolled, and ready to be mounted. This run will absolutely sell out.
Artomobilia will offer the same Legend image, but at a slightly smaller size of 24” x 16” and printed on museum-quality Kodak Endura paper. Like all the images, this will arrive at your door, flat packed, not rolls, and ready for your frame.
Artomobilia is making a small batch of fifty (50) prints of the 36" x 24" image featured on gold-standard of automotive photography paper, Fuji Pearl Pro. This special image features all five cars with their headlights on. This image will arrive at your door flat-packed, not rolled, and ready to be mounted. This run will absolutely sell out.
Proceeds from the sale will go to support our 2018 charity, Heart Reach. Heart Reach is Carmel-based non-profit (501c3) organization focused on saving lives of those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest, the single largest cause of natural death in the United States, with the placement of automated external defibrillators (AED) in local businesses and with first responders.
