“My general approach to creating art is to take subject matter that interests me and use it as the building blocks to create series of works that allude to the subject but are not literal interpretations thereby offering a narrative that is unique to the subject and extends beyond the simply decorative. I work primarily in durable, sustainable materials suited for exterior and interior placement such as cast bronze, stainless steeL, ceramics and glass. I tend to work in series, exploring each concept to the full extent of its properties, dissecting and rearranging imagery to create multiple perspectives to engage the viewer.” – via referendumproject.com

“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.” – via referendumproject.com
