Visit : 3rd October 2021
It’s been a while but finally, Monty Hitchcock is back, to show off his amazing art plus a few new pieces.
About Monty Hitchcock
Monty is an award-winning film production designer and is currently designing the 3rd series of Netflix series pennyworth. He was in Forbes magazine as one of the top 7 art exhibitions to see in London last year with his 1st solo show.
After 35 years as an art director in the film industry, events in Monty’s life compelled him to begin expressing himself on canvas. Two years of self-exploration resulted in an extraordinary collection of large-scale paintings of richly layered paints that pulsate on the canvas in a language that is, in parts, abstract, figurative and expressionistic
The showing was in the same location as last time, but the layout was a little different so more of his artwork was on display.
Monty’s Wall of Sketches
Over the year Monty has sketched many different things, some from on his journeys and others for part of his movie career.
Kids from Kingspark Secondary school visited the night before, and they got to meet Monty and decide on this placement. From what I heard they were amazed by all the artwork, and loved meeting Monty.
I stood here for a long time taking in each sketch, but I needed a second, third, and even more, look at each as every time more details stood out and grabbed my attention.
Two on here really caught my eye, one was a sketch from the Tom and Gerry movie, and the other from Pennyworth the TV series. The colours, contrast, and lighting effects in these sketches were amazing.
NEW – Dancing Heads Series x4
Just look at these, how cool do they look? I loved how Monty used his now signature blue in each of these, to depict the dancers yet if you look again you see what looked to me like tribal masks…..art on two later which is very cool.
The contrasting colors and depth of each of these were great.
I have loved visiting and seeing Monty’s new artwork and seeing everyone’s reactions to his art.
I aim to keep following Monty on his Glasgow journey and visit his events in the future.
