graduating Montserrat College of Art in 1994, Nicholas Demakes
was finally free to pursue art within the horror and fantasy
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".
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.
Nicholas finds inspiration from a myriad of places: nature,
fine art and architecture, classic horror movies, and more

cousin Cindy, also an artist, who passed away in 1990.
Currently, Nicholas has prints available at the Fool's
Mansion, Essex Street, Salem, MA. Handcrafted clocks and
prints are available for purchase through this website -
