Adam Neate had a team of helpers distributing his art
An artist who left 1,000 paintings on the streets of London for people to pick up has given his seal of approval to those already selling them on eBay.
A team of helpers left Adam Neate's works around the capital on Friday night and within hours they were appearing for sale on the website.
Neate said: "Humans are humans and everybody likes to make money.
"I have not got anything against people putting them on eBay - and if it helps them with Christmas..."
Some pictures have been put up for sale for bids over £1,000, while others started at a more modest 99p.
Neate's work has previously fetched up to £43,000 at auction.
The run of 1,000 pictures, with each piece featuring a different combination of printing and stamping, were distributed across all 32 London boroughs and the City of London.
Neate said: "I like the idea you can stumble across art in any environment, not just a gallery - you can walk along the street and find a painting."
