Resilience Exile Mutation (REM) is both a visual tale of his life’s work and an exploration of a unique aesthetic; neither here nor there, Dema’s work shines in its singularity. Like many of us, Dema has always felt in between, at the crossroads of various distinct identities and simply refused to choose a side. His works are vibrant expressions of calligraphy, graffiti, poetry and language. With each piece Dema blurs the lines between, sometimes overwhelmingly tragic, 21st century geopolitics and his humorous view of the futility of existence. Dema not only embraces his intersectionality, he sees it, in all its complexity, as his truest self.
