Joseph Demarais born 1927 was a well regarded American printmaker. Initially his interests were focused on music, influenced by the vibrant jazz scene cantered in Greenwich Village. both art and music. The visible turning point in his career as an artist came in 1960 when he resigned his position as head of music in a New York state high school and enrolled in the art department at Miami University. His talent and ambition brought him recognition for his early work in sculpture and ceramics. In 1965, after two years of teaching art and a year of doctoral study at Teachers College, Columbia University, Demarais began teaching printmaking at Trenton State Collage. As a printmaker, Demarais specialised in intaglio relief. His unique, recognisable style comes from synthesising two intaglio processes, printing from the incised lines and the surface having built up parts of the surface with acetate, vinil and wood veneers and other substances. In his relatively brief art career Demarais exhibited in over 100 national and international exhibitions and one man shows and his work is owned by the Smithsonian Museum.
