Ronald Paints

Mural Artist Partner

Regan Russell and Donald Gould, also known as Ronald, are a muralist duo who have known each other since they were in elementary school.

Donald is an Educator and Designer specializing in print design, illustration and branding. He was raised in Chula Vista and Imperial Beach and received his undergraduate degree from San Diego State University and continued to earn a graduate degree from Savannah College of Art and Design with an emphasis in Graphic Design. After living up and down the California coast over the years working in the action sports and fashion industry, he has settled back in San Diego and is currently an instructor and head of the graphic design department at Southwestern College. Donald has always enjoyed working with his hands, rather it be classic motorcycles and cars or community projects and seamlessly brings a hands-on approach to his design with his unique styling. When he’s not watching kitsch movies for personal amusement, he’s working to expand his creative range by experimenting with old-world trades and alternative forms of communication. 

Regan is a multidisciplinary fine artist and illustrator who studied studio art at UCSD. His work looks at our relationships with pop culture and how it affects our identities and world views. Regan spends his spare time rewatching the Alien movie franchise from start to finish and can be found riding his rollerblades around Balboa Park for a little exercise.
