Adam Neate 1000 piece free art for all

(click to enlarge image)

“Art worth an estimated £1m is being given away by one of the world’s leading street artists, Adam Neate, in an exhibition that will see 1,000 pieces deposited across the capital and left for whoever wishes to take them.”

I couldn't quite believe it at first, but it seems to be for real, and I expect a fair few people are going to be taking the day off this Friday on the hunt for one of his works.

The drops will be made this Friday, 14th Nov according to the paper, and they’re stating that they will be all over London:

“The action will begin before dawn, when helpers will begin distributing the hand-painted pieces on the outskirts of the city, moving inwards towards the city centre as the day goes on. While some will be left at famous landmarks around the capital many pieces will be placed in less salubrious areas of the city – both Lambeth and Hackney will be decorated.”

Post drop: Well, I wasn't lucky enough to fall over one, but I see the pieces are going on Ebay for up to 400 pounds already. Lordy - what a giveaway eh...
