You will first have come across the name of Adam Neate in the late 1990s when he was a leading exponent of the UK street art movement, literally leaving works in the street for people to collect. A self-taught artist he has reinterpreted his art for the 21st century exploring 3-dimensional themes and unfamiliar subjects.

The darker mood and palette echo some of his earlier work but combined with his experimentation of new processes and strong, masterful use of paint he creates a new body of expressive works.

As the artist himself says: “This new body of work was driven by a strong quest to explore and expand within my own visual language. The paintings may look stylistically different to each other, but they all follow an intrinsic theoretical approach, which employs the same dimensional language. I ventured outside of my comfort zone to paint things I would not normally paint, researching new ways of communicating and translating in my work a vision of the world.”
