More about the artist: After graduating Montserrat College of Art in 1994, Nicholas Demakes was finally free to pursue art within the horror and fantasy genre which was discouraged during his college years. Since then the subject matter of his work has evolved into a fantastical collection of sculptural clocks and original paintings including "Hellequin", based on the Harlequin Folklore of the Demon Huntsman and a twisted rendering of Raphael's "Cupid".
The mediums used by Nicholas in his art are often as unusual as his subject matter. Over the years he has developed a process of blending the more traditional oils and acrylics with such varied materials as radiator patch, fruit juices and coffee grounds.
