The Saddleback College Art Gallery will present Liquid Chapters, featuring the art of Damian Fulton, September 4 through 27.
Admission is free and the show is open to the public.
The exhibition includes Fulton’s early commissions and comic book art through recent gallery oil paintings and surfboards.
Fulton developed a love for drawing and the chaotic coastal culture of Southern California while growing up in Orange County and worked his way through college at Cal State Fullerton by painting custom cars and murals. Ocean Pacific hired him in 1982—fresh out of college—to create the poster for the OP Pro Surf Contest. Fulton went on from there to create comic strips “Radical Rick” for BMX Plus Magazine and “The Shred Brothers” for Snowboarder Magazine. His career has also included directing commercials, developing animation for Marvel Productions and painting for Disney.
Saddleback College is located at 28000 Marguerite Pkwy in Mission Viejo. Parking is available in Lot 12.
The gallery is open Monday through Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m.; Thursday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will also be open Saturday, September 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. An artists’ reception will be held Thursday, August 30 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
