Art HK ’12 Art Fair – Adam Neate @ Elms Lester

One of the booths we quite enjoyed at Art Hong Kong was the Elms Lesters showing with Adam Neate (interviewed). As we have stated many times before like at his exhibition last October in the UK (covered), AM is quite enamored with the street turned contemporary artist’s dimensional paintings. Judging from the response from fair-goers, we weren’t the only ones who felt that way. Discuss Art HK here. Discuss Adam Neate here.
