A Modern Take

Gone are the days of stuffy oil paintings or photo sessions at JCPenny to immortalize your loved ones. Gregg Deal, of Modern Bird Studios, is pushing the boundaries of traditional portraiture through his latest creations. His acrylic portraits marry fine art, photography, and design while translating typical family pics into modern masterpieces.

Gregg isolates and decomposes the most compelling aspects of a picture and “rebuilds” the image through wood, acrylic, and paint.

The acrylic’s floating surface adds depth to what would otherwise be a two-dimensional image.

The limited color palette creates a uniquely modern aesthetic.
