(1927-1971) Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, Demarais made hundreds of prints during his brief career. Highly innovative, Demarais experimented using copper, zpinc, masonite and acetate to achieve a variety of textures. More than 100 galleries and museums in the United States and in Europe, Demarais' prints were exhibited over a period of seven years.
Franz Geierhaas published The Graphic Works of Joseph Demarais: A Catalogue Raisonne. Geierhaas was the director and founder of the International Print Society.
Heart complications contributed to the artist's death at the age of 44.
