Damon Soule opened his highly anticipated solo show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery last Thursday night in San Francisco. Featuring several smaller works as well as larger collaborations between fellow visionaries Mars-1, David Choong Lee, and Oliver Vernon, this latest offering from Soule provides a nice and intimate look into the mind and ethereal works of the artist.
As a child, Damon Soule became so engrossed in 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 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.
