Noticed that there isn't a thread on Adam Neate yet. Adam's work is amazing!
At first glance I thought his prints/concepts were very nice and well thought out, then I visited the UK this May and I was blown away at the Ron and Adam show at Elms Lester. Seeing his stuff in person gives me a better understanding of how talented this man really is. Using mostly cardboard and paint he creates some of the most beautiful pieces of art I've ever seen.

Maybe its my biased view of Adam, but I place him here because I think his work has transcended being merely just urban/street art. Adam did start off as as an artist leaving pieces in the street, but he's now moved into finer art and have refined many of his pieces for viewing at higher end gallery shows and museums.
So I do agree that he's was an urban artist to begin with. I wonder how/when an artist is considered "contemporary"? Ian Francis and Parla have also been long considered Urban artists, but I think due to their popularity which seem to transcend mere street/urban art, they deserve recognition in this category. But this is just MHO.
What do you guys think?
