Adam Neate has not given away any of his works for six months
Urban artist Adam Neate plans to give away 1,000 of his works by leaving them around the streets of London for anyone to pick up next Friday night.
A team of helpers will work their way from the outskirts of the capital to the centre, distributing the pieces.
"Street art is what I've always done and I wanted to get back to my roots," said Neate, whose pieces have fetched up to £43,000 at auction.
Each piece will have a different combination of printing and stamping.
"Every piece will be stamped or stapled differently, hence have an individual look," said Neate, who has lived in London for eight years.
He added: "Art was around before money so people should be able to enjoy it for what it is.
"The art will be distributed through poorer and richer areas of London in a non-discriminatory fashion, from the outside in."
The value of urban art has rocketed this year with a painting attributed to graffiti artist Banksy, salvaged from a London wall, fetching £208,100.
Neate's two and three dimensional paintings use recycled cardboard boxes as canvases and have been noted for their complex layering and bold use of paint.
"I don't mind what people do with them. They can keep them and put them on the wall in their house or stick them in the bin," said the 31-year-old.
