Michael Demers (born 1975) is an Associate Professor of Photography and Digital Media, and has taught new media courses since 2007.[1] His work "incorporates culture and cultural identity in a synthesis of critical investigation and his own adolescent preoccupation with toys and other weird ephemera."[2]

Michael Demers was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He attended Florida Atlantic University, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Printmaking.[3] Afterward he attended the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München in Munich, Germany where he studied under the printmaker Gerd Winner and earned his Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste Diplom.[4] He later attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio where he studied under the New York-based painter Guy Goodwin and earned a Master of Fine Arts degree.[5] Between 2007 and 2010 he taught Digital Art and New Media courses at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.[6] Since 2010 he has taught Fine and Digital Art as an Associate Professor at Asnuntuck Community College in Connecticut, where he is the Program Coordinator for Fine, Performing and Digital Arts.[7]
