Opening Reception: Thurs. May 7th, ’09
Fecal Face Gallery

Check out a brand new interview Fecal Face just did with Damon here.

As a child Damon Soule (b. 1974) became so engrossed in his drawing that it became a distraction; at age 16 he dropped out of school opting for the immediacy of GED. At 19, with $300, a packed bag of clothes, and small box of art supplies, Damon moved to San Francisco, CA and enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Program at the San Francisco Art Institute. In 1996 Soule became the Art Director and Co-founder of FIT skateboards and Civilian Clothing. After art directing the brands for a number of years, he sold his portion of the business to pursue art full-time.

Soule’s paintings and drawings have since been featured in group exhibitions in San Francisco at 111 Minna Gallery, White Walls, Punch Gallery, Southern Exposure Gallery, Rizzoli Gallery, Culture Cache, New Langton Arts (“I Dart SF”, 2003) and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (“Outside Art”, 2002). Recent shows also include “New Works” by Oliver Vernon and Damon Soule at BLVD Gallery, Seattle (2007); “Green Art Exhibition” at Robert Berman Gallery, Santa Monica (2007); and “Stories From the Wonderland” at Dorothy Circus Gallery, Rome, Italy (2008). His show “Amused Loon” ran to praise reviews at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City this past Oct.

DAMON SOULE profile:
Damon Soule’s work challenges many of the myths perpetuated by the scientific establishment. Drawing inspiration from the world of alternative sciences, Soule uses fractal patterns and intricate designs along with a carefully chosen color pallet to help further explore the scientific universe.
You can check out a cool interview with Soule over at Fecal Face here. The interview also features images from many of the works from his recent solo show in NYC at Joshua Liner Gallery.
In addition to the above interview, be sure to check out a great video that the folks over at Joshua Liner Gallery put together to help promote his recent solo here.

Over the past decade his work has shown the world over with such respected galleries as Joshua Liner Gallery (NYC), Lineage Gallery (Philadelphia), White Walls (San Francisco), BLVD. Gallery (Seattle), Intoxicated Demons Gallery (Berlin), 111 Minna Gallery (San Francisco), Robert Berman Gallery (Santa Monica), and numerous others.
