As part of the events planned to celebrate Aston Martin Centenary year, the British auto maker launched an exclusive artwork exhibition at London W-One showroom. The gallery includes Aston Martin paintings by artist James Hart Dyke, the creator of ‘A year with MI6’ exhibition.

To help him come up with ideas for the exhibition, James was given exclusive, behind-the-scenes, access throughout the year to Aston Martin heritage center and production facilities. His paintings, consisting mainly of oil on canvas, document among other things the drive of the 1959 Le Mans-winning DBR1 by racing legend Sir Stirling Moss at the year’s N24, the debut of the centenary-inspired concept car – the CC100.

It’s not all about classics and heritage. James has also tried to capture the spirit of Aston Martin in their current works, recording the building of modern cars at the hi-tech factory at Gaydon, and detailing the unique craftsmanship and artisan skills on hand at Aston Martin Works.

Aston Martin Centenary Art Exhibition runs at W-One on Park Lane in Central London until Friday 29 November.

James Hart Dyke said: “The priceless opportunity to get so closely involved in this, Aston Martin’s centenary year, was one that I simply could not turn down.

“I have been lucky enough to attend many of the signature events in this remarkable year and I hope the paintings deliver a real flavour of the special celebrations.”
