Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen is stepping back into the art world by opening a new exhibition of his work in London.

The Brit has enjoyed a stellar year thanks to the success of 12 Years A Slave, which won a raft of trophies throughout 2014's awards season, including three Oscars.

He has now returned to his roots to put his latest artwork on display at London's Thomas Dane Gallery, where his first ever exhibit opened in 2004.

The show will run from 14 October (14).

MCQueen studied art and went on to win the revered Turner Prize in 1999. He moved into directing feature films in 2008 with Hunger.
