My name is Ryan Demaree, I was born in Columbus, Ohio [USA] October 28th 1991 and I consider myself a Modern-Surrealist. I work in various outlets of creation [Painting, Drawing, Video, Installation, Sculpture etc.] but I am primarily a painter. In my work I like to focus on science-fiction, mythology, and primitivism.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
As an artist I like to work with themes of Primitivism, Science-Fiction and Mythology. I create my own personal mythological symbolism, and world within my work in order to achieve my vision. My work is heavily inspired by both my own personal experiences and dreams in my life, as well as by Science and Science-Fiction. As a Surrealist I consider myself an artist of the mind in service of completely liberating the art from all shackles which might wish cling to it.
My goal as an artist is to completely eliminate any shackles placed on art and to invite the viewer into my mind for a delve into my own forged mythological, expressive, surrealism.
