Demetrius James Dukas, a world-renowned Byzantine iconographer who decorated churches with mosaics and paintings in the United States and abroad, died June 17 from complications of an infection at his home in Bowie. He was 83. The son of Greek immigrant parents, Mr. Dukas was born and raised in Lynn, Mass., where he graduated in 1947 from Lynn English High School. His artistic talents became evident early, and he began drawing portraits when he was 9 years old. "He had a keen interest in Byzantine art and was drawn to icons because he felt they were used to help people with prayer and reflection," said a niece, Melanie Dukas of Saugus, Mass.
