John Cullen graduated from NCAD Dublin with a degree in Fine Art in 1988. He works in various media including painting, drawing, photography and more recently film.

His photographic work broadly deals with the processes and conditions under which meaning is determined and assimiliated from our lived experience in the world. In his work he attempts to create ambiguities that disrupt meanings and make attempts at easy readings difficult. This further destabilises any definite conclusion in order to question the value of meaning itself.

Painting is also an important part of his work. He generally works in series, teasing out a theme to explore a range of possibilities. There is an understated element in the images he produces. He puts emphasis on the seeminly ordinary and mundane by observing places devoid of human presence, in order to tease out contrasting notions like absence and presence.
