Adam Neate is a street artist, but not in the way you might expect. For
the past eight years Neate has been leaving his art - made using
cardboard, aerosols, and found objects - on the streets of the East End,
for Londoners to treasure, trash or ignore.
His work is technically expert and has won him acknowledgement from the
Tate, National Portrait Gallery and The National Gallery and various
sell out shows at The Elms Lester Gallery.
Neate's street art has garnered global interest, having been documented
on CNN reports and European television. Major collectors and celebrities
are fighting for his original works and international critics have
lauded the artist's work.
ADAM is both an urban icon amongst his peers, and recognised
internationally by companies such as Dr. Martens, Sprite and PRADA, all
of whom he has been commissioned to design products for.
He is continually challenging his work, often quoting Picasso “To copy
oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility"
