Matt Demers

I grew up making the kind of crafts you make out of toilet paper tubes and pipe cleaners, coloring outside the lines of coloring books, scribbling everywhere and on everything, reading old comics, and customizing everything I owned. My childhood home was very old and filled with old stuff which led to my passion for old objects. I studied graphic arts in high school and college and I was really inspired by graffiti and street art at that time. I’ve worked as a screen printer, embroiderer, sign maker, antiques dealer, and gravedigger. Elements of all these experiences shape my inspiration and affect my work visually and conceptually. I explore these elements through non objective compositions working quickly and spontaneously using a variety of materials and techniques.
