A tribute to artist John Demos

Accessible Arts would like to acknowledge the life of Sydney artist John Demos and his recent passing.

A prolific worker, Demos chose surfaces such as paper, ceramics, wood and found materials, mapping these spaces with patterns, shapes and text.

His recurring motifs (such as shields and badges) and repetitive use of words create a strong rhythmic composition in his graphic works.

John exhibited extensively over several decades, with exhibitions held at The Cross Art Projects, Macquarie University Art Gallery, SCA Gallery University of Sydney, and Big Fag Press.
