Adam Cullen

 
 

Adam Cullen (b.1965) Sydney, Australia

He graduated from the City Art Institute in Sydney, and later received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of New South Wales.

Considered an "enfant terrible" in the Australian art world, Adam has become one of Australia's significant artists. He gained early fame dragging around a rotting pig's head that was chained to his ankle.

Well known for winning the Archibald Prize in 2000 with a portrait of actor David Wenham, his works are irreverent yet humourous, and at times quite confronting.

Adam has exhibited broadly in individual and group exhibitions both in Australia and overseas. In 2002 he represented Australia at the 25th Biennale de São Paulo.

He is widely respected and considered one of Australia's most collectible contemporary artists. Cullen’s work is represented in numerous state and regional galleries including National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Queensland Art Gallery and the Geelong Art Gallery,

His studio is in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales.
