An Emmy award-nominated art director is set to bring his work to Glasgow in an exhibition inspired by his diagnosis of ADHD. 

Monty Hitchcock was inspired to take the leap into art after a 35-year-long career as a film director. 

The exhibition, Unlocked, will be held in the Argyll Chambers at the end of this month with part of the proceeds being donated to the ADHD Foundation.

Alongside working on his art, the director is currently working on the third series of Netflix's Pennyworth starring Paloma Faith. 

Speaking about his late ADHD diagnosis, he said: ADHD has given me opportunities that I didn’t know were there. My paintings are my way to shout from the rooftops that it can be gift.”

“In its simplest way, ADHD broke down all the barriers that were always in front of me and opened a whole new unknown horizon.”

One in 30 adults have ADHD with symptoms presenting in a range of different ways. 

The artist was recently announced as one of the ADHD Foundation’s ambassadors after his late diagnosis inspired his career shift.

Dr Tony Lloyd, CEO of the ADHD Foundation the Neurodiversity Charity, said: “Too often neurodiverse people, like those with ADHD, are defined by what they cannot do and their innate intelligence, creativity and talent are overlooked.”

“Monty's incredible career, his talent and the boldness of this exhibition, makes me eager for more people to appreciate the incredible contribution neurodiverse people make to our lives, economy, culture, sporting heritage and the arts.”

Unlocked will showcase 14 extraordinary large-scale paintings, each an intense, physical work that erupts on the canvas in colours of self-expression.

The artist added: “There is too much stigma associated with neurodiverse labels. My plan is to show everyone that ADHD is a special club – and I'm here with you!”

The paintings can be viewed from July 30 to August 1.
