Damon Soule was born in 1974 in Atlanta, Georgia. Soon after, in 1976, his family relocated to New Orleans, where he spent most of his childhood. Soule’s parents along with and several extended family members are also artists, making the visual arts part of the norm growing up.
As a child Soule 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, Soule moved to San Francisco, CA. After being in San Francisco for about year he enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Program at the San Francisco Art Institute.
Soule again left school in 1996 to become the Art Director and Co-founder of FIT skateboards and Civilian Clothing; simultaneously he continued his painting. Later that year he sold his portion of the business to pursue art full-time.
During the next several years Soule made a name for himself in the burgeoning San Francisco art scene showing at many small galleries and boutiques popping up all over the city.
Soule’s work has continued to evolve over the last decade, showing his work throughout the
United States and Europe.
Soule’s work is highly complex and imaginative in both practice and concept. Fueled by his inherent investigative and obsessive curiosity, he employs an array of scientific and artistic systems to create his paintings including polarity, abstraction, alchemy, geometry, quantum physics, surrealism, molecular biology, meta physics, ancient symbolism, cosmology, Buddhism, sci-fi fantasy, cyber- infrastructures, the global, digital subatomic and infinitely vast multiverses we may find ourselves in at any given moment.
His use of bright colors and hyper crisp geometric patterns, interwoven through n-dimensional topographies, create abstract forms and Zen like mandalas that gravitate towards the infinite and eternal interconnectedness. Electrifying and activating the conscious and unconscious transcending both time and space. The viewer is immediately engaged in a visual dialogue between the artist and the divine Quintessence.
Damon Soule was spontaneously infused in our solar system via the planet Earth, 1974, and began expanding annually in a location sometimes referred to as the Crescent City. Around the age of four, he began work on his lifelong pursuit concerning the application of homogeneous forms to linear topography. Exposure to such a wide range of serendipity during his formative years provided him with a unique vision: “self-determined entropy can produce highly contagious effects,” he recalls. Damon’s visualizations have been exhibited throughout the universe. His work is included in the permanent collections of nearly all of his friends, as well as many private collectors.
