Adam Cullen merges social satire with technicolour excess. An ‘enfant terrible’ of the art world, he launched onto the Australian art scene by chaining a pig’s head to his ankle for two weeks. This punk stunt was followed by a career spent painting tough, uncompromising and challenging subjects, captured with a pop art twist.

In ‘Corporate’, Cullen takes aim at the corporate world. The office is presented as a labyrinth overhung by a nexus of black scribble. In the foreground a man shrugs beside a disbowelled intestine – what do we sacrifice to ascend the corporate ladder?

Exploring masculinity, crime and animalism, Cullen’s work is imbued with an unexpected vulnerability. In his lifetime, he was a winner and multi-time Archibald Prize finalist, honoured with a 2008 retrospective at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and an Art Hotel in Prahran, cementing him as one of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists.

Hand-signed and limited in edition, this framed original etching will add an edge to collections of contemporary art.
