Joseph Demaree was heavily influenced by early Surrealism, Marvel comics, skateboard art and punk rock. "To Be Born” was painted while attending Willow Glen High School in San Jose, CA. during his freshmen year in 1989 and would lead him to take part in the AP Art Program taught by Mr. Ellner. Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Yves Tanguy, Francis Bacon, Winston Smith and Robert Williams were direct influences during Demaree's first major attempts at painting.
