Thanks to artist Simon Claridge and automaker Alfa Romeo, we could bid bland car parks adieu for a little while, as the two have collaborated to make the dream of the most chic car park a radiant reality. Check!

“When I started working on this project, I knew immediately that these spaces had to be about style icons,” explains Simon, who has chosen to enrich the space with a montage of his signature portraits of iconic individuals, such as Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss, Marylin Monroe, James Dean and David Bowie. “Whether they’re from the worlds of music, fashion or the silver screen, these are globally recognisable figures with stand out style and enduring appeal.”

Today is the last day to check out the installation, so make sure you grasp this opportunity to see it at Q-Park’s Oxford Street car park (Cavendish Square, W1G 0PN). A temporary gallery of Simon’s other artwork could also be seen at nearby Motor Village on 105 Wigmore Street at Marylebone.
