See Notting Hill's Barney McMahon mural

In 1997, artist Barney McMahon was commissioned by the Notting Hill Improvement Group to brighten up what was then rather a dingy alley just off Notting Hill Gate. McMahon spent three months on the work, using paint provided by Simpsons Paints, and the results are still visible today to passers-by.

The alleyway connects Notting Hill Gate to Victoria Gardens, and where once it ran down the side of Damien Hirst's Pharmacy restaurant, now a rather less interesting branch of Marks and Spencer's has taken its place.
