Professional Biography

Haig Demarjian has been relentlessly printmaking, drawing and painting for over 25 years. He was trained primarily as a printmaker, earned his undergraduate degree from Middlebury College and received his MA and MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His artwork has been exhibited internationally and spans a broad range of media from fine art to commercial illustration. Recently, his prints were included in group exhibitions such as Impressions 2014 and Northshore Prints as well as in traveling shows such as the Engraving 2009 print portfolio and the Southern Graphics Council International Juried Members Show. Recent painting commissions include works for Providence, Rhode Island’s Elmwood Air Gallery, for the Frederick E. Berry Library at Salem State University and for Salem State’s Viking Hall. Additionally, he expended a great deal of sweat and blood in co-masterminding the independent feature film Die You Zombie Bastards! which has won awards, been screened all over the globe and been available on DVD for over a decade. Unable to settle his ideas into a single medium, he also spent a few years writing and drawing the adventures of his comic book creation Super Inga.
