Damien Fulton grew up in Orange County, California and spent a lot of time as a kid on the beach. He loved the scene; from hot rodders, to bikers, to hippies and of course surfers. He went to California State University Fullerton to study art but found the traditional courses tedious. After graduating Damian got involved in creating posters for various surf events, created comic strips for Surf publications and then got involved directing commercials for a toy company. During this time he started creating his own art which is a reflection of his experience of Southern California - a mix of intense urbanization and the freedom of the beach and surf. He held his first solo show at Gasoling Gallery and never looked back!
