About Chris DeMaria

I like to paint subjects in a way I haven’t seen before. I feel like living in Appalachia provides the perfect setting to achieve that. The people and places have a wonderful uniqueness that is special. Through my artwork, I hope to celebrate that.

Biography

I was born and grew up in Miami, Florida but Appalachia has greatly inspired my painting. I want to show the beauty of the reality of our region. My paintings don’t depict postcard imagery but, rather, an old trailer hanging on the side of a mountain or a street lined with old buildings slowly deteriorating. In spite of all the problems here (as with anywhere) people continue on. The good and bad aspects of life mixed together is what inspires me.
