Damian’s art reflects the world as only he knows it. Intimate moments and emotional impressions writ in the colors of places that have touched him from the four corners of the earth. He balances what is plain to see and hints at the secret that hides just underneath his subject’s public face, while chiding you into taking a breath and lingering considered viewing of each piece of his artwork.


Damian Samuel

Damian John Barrington Samuel comes to us from Guilford, U.K. He studied at The Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. and at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. At VCU, he was not only immersed in painting, photography and filmmaking, but was also immensely influenced by European art House films and heavily involved in the burgeoning Richmond music scene of the early 90’s.

In 1992 Damian moved to the west coast. San Diego then San Francisco a year later. What struck him most was the California lifestyle and the color of the light and landscapes that the sunny west coast has to offer.


Upon moving to San Francisco, Damian landed right in the middle of the music and art scene at the Hotel Utah where he worked and slowly began painting from this new palate of experiences. The next ten years would find Damian pooling his resources to buy the bar with a couple of investors with the common purpose in mind of supporting the Independent music scene and the local art community by giving them a stage and platform in which to polish their works. He divided his spare time to painting as much as he could as well as writing, directing and shooting 3 short films including an unfinished piece on the Hotel Utah itself.


In 2009 Damian reasserted his painting efforts to paint several new series (25 pieces in total) inspired by his recent travels to Argentina, Patagonia, Brazil, Uruguay, Dubai, Mexico and the California Coast. He shot an extensive photography series during his travels and added many of his photos to his fine art repertoire.


While searching for stories to paint he found the seeds of the stories in the photographs themselves, and embellished them to create a larger story in his painting.
