Maybe not the first two artists you'd think to exhibit in the same space together, but a double billing of Britain's beloved Adam Neate and America's legendary Ron English at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms in London is nothing short of eye candy wonder.

With English's ironic antics representing the firm foundation of low brow and urban art and Neate's explosive and poignant portraits suggesting no bounds to the future of street art, the Adam & Ron Show opened Thursday May 1st with a sensational private viewing of new works by both artists. To accompany the exhibition, which runs until May 31st, Elms Lesters has published a 72-page catalogue with over 60 full color illustrations of the artists' works.  Visit elmslesters.co.uk for more details.
