Featured Artist: DEME5:: Boston

Mention the word aerosol in Boston and his name is bound to pop up. Rich Gomez a.k.a. DEME5 the Dominican born artist first realized his potential at an early age. Deme drew inspiration from graffiti books and Boston's environments. With a keen sense of design and a vision to transform any surface put before him, his talent has not gone unrecognized. He has received commissions from some of Boston's most reputable businesses. It is said that "to whom much is given, much is required". Realizing this, Deme decided to share his talent and knowledge by becoming a painting instructor/mentor at Artist for Humanity, a local nonprofit for inner city youth. Deme now works as a self-employed artist and is exploring all avenues of creativity. Although aerosol is his primary medium, he has recently begun to incorporate new materials and methods to execute his ideas. Not one to brag, he is well known for his humility. His future goals include exhibiting at contemporary institutions, collaborating with likeminded artsts, and sharing his work with the people of Boston and the world.
