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 ‘Dancing Girls’, two sexualised women are locked in a dance, or is it a fight? A ribbon binds them, like a muscular tongue. Celebration falls into combat as Cullen’s work teeters on the edge between seduction and brutality.

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, this print will invigorate collectors of pop and contemporary art or those seeking an edge for their space.
