Through the eyes of Australian artist Adam Cullen (1965 – 2012)
Australian artist Adam Cullen gained a Master of Fine Arts (University of New South Wales – Sydney) in 1999. He did not have it easy in life battling significant health issues yet was never deterred from creating artworks relaying strong messages. Gallery Ecosse gives one an idea of the force of his work which is riddled through with in your face statements.
Adam Cullen passed away on the 28th July 2012. The Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art chose one of his paintings they own to be placed in the foyer to honour him. This large, powerful painting titled Blanket Men was painted in 2004.
