Using a highly personal visual language,Adam Cullen’s art explores a range of topics including masculinity,cowboy culture,crime and pop culture. His gestural marking is colourful and bold. Cullen’s slightly abstracted forms emerge from the hand and mind of an insightful and highly skilled draftsman. Personal Din is a striking work. The sense of introspection is heightened,the colour electric and the subject matter needs little explanation or interpretation.Adam Cullen was hung in the Archibald Prize eight times, and won in 2000 with his portrait of David Wenham. He exhibited in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize in 2000 and 2001 and won the Mosman Art Prize in 2005.His work is held in important private and public collections around Australia.
