Neate       Selects

Neate Selects are a collection of 10,000 unique NFT portraits from celebrated British artist Adam Neate.

Curated by The Spectacle Group, the works are generated from 425 images of original artworks from Adam’s personal archive, gathered over a career spanning 20 years. They’re minted and stored on NOIZ, an eco-friendly proof of capacity blockchain.


“Portraits have always been a central theme in my art. I often try to paint what something feels like, more than what it looks like.”

Neate Selects are a celebration of Adam’s best-known portrait works. The collection is a powerful expression of his trademark ‘Dimensional’ style, and his constant and fearless exploration of different media over the years.

We use NOIZ’s software to compose portraits using these images, with over 16 billion unique ways to generate each NFT. Thousands of portraits are generated before a human touch is applied by Adam and a team from The Spectacle Group, picking by hand the portraits that meet his aesthetic requirements.

Redefining the portrait and abstract art

In the form of uniquely generated NFTs.


Born in 1977 and originally from Ipswich, UK, Adam became fascinated with the colour and energy of graffiti since the age of 10. After training as a graphic designer, he began pursuing his long-standing desire to be an artist in the streets of London.

Self-taught and starting with spray paint and found objects, cardboard quickly became his medium of choice, giving him the freedom to rip, staple, fold and layer any shape he needed. It allowed him to explore space and dimension like never before.

With cardboard a signature of Adam’s works, the material remains inseparable from his name today. His use of it marked the beginning of his obsession in what he’s branded as ‘Dimensional Art’.

Always a free spirit and unrestricted by traditional practices, he spent the next two decades examining his style and experimenting with a range of other materials from oil paint to plaster.

“If I’ve got the idea that I want to have paint floating in the air, I try to make it happen – with acetate, Perspex, glass, or by any means necessary.”

Inspired by Picasso and Cubism, and with a splash of Expressionism, Futurism and Fauvism, he intentionally collides light with dark, hard with soft, and gloss with matte to manipulate space, shadow and perspective.

“I like to paint, but not necessarily with paint. I can use light, chrome and sand. Shadows or reflections. Frosted colours or sharp colours, to make it blurry and focused at once.”

Adam’s pieces invite viewers to move around the works and fully experience their multi-dimensional effects.

Having taken Dimensionalism to the next level, his works have gained recognition from the Tate, National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, and broken auction records at Sotheby’s and Bonhams.



Neate Selects are the creation of a partnership between The Spectacle Group and NOIZ, an art gallery and blockchain platform. In 2021, we made the world’s first NFTs to interact with physical paintings by Adam Neate.

The Spectacle Group

A contemporary art gallery that’s brought some of the most sought-after artists around the world to Asia, TSG represents Adam and has created NFTs for its other artists including Frank Vigneron, Antoine Gaussin and Marvelous Media Engine.



An efficient proof of capacity blockchain with low gas fees, NOIZ is building an ecosystem featuring a digital wallet called BEAM that supports crypto and fiat currency transactions, an NFT marketplace for buying, selling and transferring NFTs, and features such as augmented reality and metaverse access.



Charity has been the foundation of the Selects since the day we started this project.

A percentage of profits will go towards five causes, with our team and collectors’ community discussing and deciding which NGOs to give to in our Holders’ Lounge on Discord.

Each portrait has one of five distinct background colours which signify the cause that NFT will contribute to. Choose a colour and show the world what matters to you!

You can track how the Selects are giving back here or by following us on Discord, Instagram and Twitter.



Besides the artistic value and charitable impact of the Selects, we want our collectors to enjoy benefits and exclusive experiences from the day we launch.

Low gas fees

Thanks to NOIZ’s efficient proof of capacity algorithm, which uses 2,000 joules of energy per transaction compared to 7,000,000 joules typically used by mainstream proof of work blockchains, Neate Selects benefit from negligible gas fees of $0.000083 per transaction.


NFTs are still new, so we want to give as much peace of mind as possible. That’s why we’re offering a warranty programme where, in the event of theft or loss of asset, NOIZ can ‘burn’ the first NFT and re-mint a replacement, so long as the NFT is kept in the NOIZ blockchain. The new NFT will be identical in uniqueness, authenticity and functionality as the first.

Augmented reality

NFTs on NOIZ are held in their exclusive BEAM wallet. More than just for storing NFTs, the app’s additional functions enhance the way you experience your artworks. In AR mode, you can display and interact with your NFTs in real-world environments, and share your experiences on social media. Who says NFTs only live on a screen?!

Neate Selects X Design Hotel

For two months, we’ll be partnering with a hotel in Hong Kong to give collectors a special experience combining NFT art, drinking and dining.

Stay tuned here and on our social media as the team finalises these details.

Late 2022 and beyond

We’re working on some exciting ways to build the future of Neate Selects, including access to special edition artworks and other rewards for collectors.

Some of our ideas include using artificial intelligence to create Adam-styled portraits, biometric personalisation to generate truly individual NFTs, and developing ‘3D Neates’ that can live in the metaverse.

We invite all collectors to join us in the Holders’ Lounge on Discord, as we’ll be developing our technology and bringing these artworks to life together with them.
