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.

Cullen’s ‘Growler’ is iconic. A sheep dog beams at the viewer, dripping ink, saliva and style. Abstracted against a saturated backdrop, Cullen captures the dog as a symbol of Australian masculinity – roguish, bold and more bark than bite. This one is for dog people.

In his lifetime, Cullen 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 edition, this work will invigorate collectors of pop and contemporary art or those seeking an edge for their space.
