OFFICIAL JAMES BOND 50th ANNIVERSARY SILK SCREEN PRINT


In 2009, to mark the centenary of the British Secret Intelligence Service, 45-year-old London artist James Hart Dyke was given unparalleled access to produce a series of behind the scenes paintings for an exhibition called A Year With MI6. It was this work that brought him to the attention of Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli who commissioned him to reinterpret the Bond posters of the 1960s and 1970s. They then asked him to capture all six Bonds for a special painting to celebrate Bond’s 50th Anniversary. Entitled Everything or Nothing – 50 Years of James Bond the artwork depicts all six actors to have played Bond. The collaboration was so successful the resulting artwork has also been used as the poster design for the documentary Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, which was released in the UK on October 5, 2012.

Hart Dyke’s artwork is available to buy as limited edition silkscreen prints published by Mount Street Galleries in association with EON Productions. They have been produced by the celebrated Coriander Studio (responsible for the manufacture or fine art prints by artists such as Sir Peter Blake and Damien Hirst amongst others) and available in four different colour-ways: Yellow (edition of 200), Red (edition of 75), Blue (edition of 75) and White with Gold Leaf (deluxe edition of 50).
