Surfploytation by Damian Fulton

Digging through our archives we rediscovered these awesome, imaginative paintings by Californian artist Damian Fulton from his "Surfploytation" exhibit at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery back in 2010. So we thought we’d share them with you…

Contact the Gallery Director for availability and purchase info: (323) 666-7667 and see the Surfploytation gallery art index here.

The art tells a story! Learn more about Damian’s Surfploytation vision…

Surfploytation background

Damian Fulton is fascinated by the dichotomy and duality of Los Angeles beach culture. The proximity of one of the world’s most diverse and congested cities to the Pacific coast provides fertile material for Damian’s dark take on the California dream. Perhaps it’s in the water. Surfploytation continues Damian’s twisted ride down PCH where Surf City is way more Gotham than groovy. Car chases, girls with guns, noir nostalgia, a visual narrative that reads like conceptual art for a fictional Surfploytation movie. Have this new work amped up to 11.

Before focusing on his own vision, Damian helped, Disneyland, Marvel Productions, and various magazines find theirs.
