Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider Osso di Seppia fine car art by Joel Clark.

Signed, limited Giclee art print on 240 gsm matt paper.



One of the most distinctive automotive shapes ever created is the main focus of this Alfa Romeo art. This particular car, dubbed Osso di Seppia (Italian for cuttlebone) is a pure legend with its elegant curves, proven chassis and his famous appearance in The Graduated, driven by Dustin Hoffman.

Osso di Seppia is pure Alfa Romeo art

Alfa Romeo Spider in this very form is the very last project that Batista Pininfarina was part of. The long tail, the curved sides, and the rising exhaust pipe are the trademark elements of this particular Alfa Romeo. It is the motoring equivalent of Dolce Vita, symbolizing the beautiful, careless and sweet living in southern Europe during the 60s.

Although it wasn’t extremely powerful and fast, the Spider, especially in its first edition, known as Osso di Seppia is among the eternal automotive beauties. Put the peppy 4-cylinder engine in the equation and you have one of the most joyful Italian cars. Period. It was light, simple, beautiful and almost reliable. Believe it or not, when this car was presented to the automotive press, the journalists didn’t acclaim its design. The Alfa Romeo Spider was thought “gimmicky” or “poured from a jelly mold” or other, even less kind things. Well, it seems that the time is capable of curing misconceptions and this car is an evidence.

The art you are looking at is depicting the car in its original, late 60s condition with basic wheels coming right from the Giulia sedan with shiny chromed hubcaps for not letting you be distracted by the rear end of the car. It’s long rear boot sloped to a particular point just like the front. Where the notorious Alfa Romeo twin-cam engine is laid. With dual Weber carburetors or with SPICA mechanical injection, this 4-cylinder engineering magic is producing between 88 and 116 hp, depending on its cylinders volume.

Now you can make yours this beautiful piece of Alfa Romeo art created and issued by Joel Clark.

Joel Clark car art

His love of Motorsport, and anything-on-wheels, stretches back to childhood and growing up near to Silverstone. Joel`s father would take him to vintage race meets throughout the 80’s, resulting in his obsession with cars and bikes

Upon leaving school, Joel took a job designing and making vinyl stickers for race teams, with a Sign maker based at the circuit. This is where he learnt the skill of ‘hand-cutting’ vinyl. However Joel soon decided to go to Art College and 6 years later, left to pursue a career as a Creative in Advertising – working in some of the world’s biggest agencies.

Since leaving Advertising in 2014, he has now gone full-circle and returned to the unique skill Joel learnt back at Silverstone in 1990. Now he hands cut the vinyl to create artworks of cars. This use of vinyl gives Joel`s original pieces a totally unique finish to that of the actual car he is depicting. And when applied to helmets and body-panels, the results turn real objects into surreal pop art sculptures.

Up to date, Joel Clark is the only artist using hand cut vinyl as a medium – therefore his artworks are a truly unique and original offering. At Simply Petrol we are more than happy to share with you the art of this stunning automotive artists in the form of beautiful posters and art prints.
