Adam Neate spent a decade leaving paintings on the streets “Those years were my art school. I learnt about colour and composition simply through practise. The critics were there every day..”
Adam Neate is a self taught British artist who began by leaving his paintings, on cardboard, on the streets of London and now has work in collections in 28 countries around the world.
A fearless painter, he has developed his own language of Dimensional Painting; in Neate’s most recent work, space itself has become a medium, with the viewer activating their own ‘viewing space’ by moving and changing their vantage point, in order to get the full multi-dimensional effect.
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”.
