His name is Hart Dyke, James Hart Dyke. A little over 18 months ago, James Hart Dyke was offered a mission by Her Majesty’s Government to shadow spooks going undercover with the MI6 (the Secret Intelligence Service) to report and document the life of undercover agents through paintings and drawings. Sound stranger than fiction? Usually life is…especially a life in espionage.

Hart Dyke had to work under very strict conditions of secrecy after being selected for this project commemorating the centenary year of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) in 2009. With his work with the MI6, Hart Dyke produced 40 paintings and 25 drawings for a brief art show at Mount Street Galleries in London, UK.
