Adam Neate is a street artist, but not in the way you might expect. For years Neate left 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"
