About Ryan Demaree
Born and raised in Columbus, OH [USA]- In my work I like to focus on topics of Primitivism, Science-Fiction, and Mythology. I create my own personal mythologies and symbolism in my art that conveys my Surreal vision of the world. My work is heavily inspired by both my personal daily experiences in life, as well as by Science, and Science-Fiction. I work in various outlets of creation [Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Video, Photography etc.] but I am primarily a Painter. I consider myself a Modern-Surrealist.
