Acute Misfortune – The Life and Death of Adam Cullen by Erik Jensen

Adam was quite a famous painter here in Australia, I first saw one of his artworks here in Dubbo, I thought it was the best thing in the gallery. I didn’t much think about him again until I saw this book at the library, I hadn’t even realised he had died. The author was only 19 when he began to hang out with him for a few years for this book, Adam lied that he had a publishing deal already, Adam also lied about a lot of other things. But he also painted some great pictures, he was also a proper tortured artist, drinking himself to death at age 46.

Yes, that is Chopper Read posing in front of his portrait.
