My name is Ryan Demaree, I was born in Columbus Ohio [USA] October 28th 1991 and I am a traditional abstract-surrealist painter. I have been interested in the arts all my life, although it wasn't until my high-school years that I got serious about art, and painting in particular. I consider myself a modern artist that accepts the title 'Abstract-Surrealist' because I have studied and I incorporate various abstract and surreal art forms, such as cubism, impressionism, expressionism, primitivism etc. into something that I like to call Abstract-Surrealism. I like to create something that is both aesthetically pleasing/ stylistically unique and thoughtful and mind-provoking as well. To me that is the ultimate goal in creating successful artwork, creating something that is both beautiful to look at and interesting to think about. In my years of being a serious artist I have had my own success such as shows, features, sales, publications and more!

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
My artwork is a representation of my studies of the world, as well as my own personal thoughts and experiences within the world, which tends to take on a more 'Raw' and 'Surreal' theme that I use to express my vision as an artist. I nearly always work in the traditional medium of paint to canvas, I tend to use oils and acrylics most often and I usually paint on stretched canvas or wooden boards. I feel that painting, paint to canvas, gives a better, more personal, and raw experience both as an artist, and as a painter.
'The world is a set, and man is an ape' -Ryan Demaree
MY GOALS AS AN ARTIST
My goal as an artist is to create an idealistically innovative and aesthetically beautiful line of work that I like to call 'Abstract-Surrealism' that is analogous to my views of the world in regards to my studies and experiences in the world. My goal is to create a balance between personal ambition and cultural relevance to the outside world.
'The Surrealist uses oil paint on a canvas, like the Scientist uses chalk on a chalkboard, both representing different hemispheres of the brain to obtain the similar goal of better understanding reality through different means' - Ryan Demaree
