Modern Bird Studios Guest Giveaway

July 7, 2010


I really love this idea! It looks so modern and a million times more interesting than a collage of photos.

Modern Bird Studios is a modern art company that takes photographs and creates paintings from them! That's right, REAL paintings. Not printed reproductions.

One absolutely lucky Grosgrain reader will receive a 12"x12" piece for you to hang in their home valued at $215. Wouldn't this make a great anniversary or mother's day/ father's day gift? 
Gregg Deal, Creative Director of Modern Bird Studios, has always struggled with the idea of the “starving artist” syndrome. How would he ever support a family living a lifestyle like that? Is it even possible? He has wrestled with the idea that there must be some way to make a living and take care of his family off of his God-given talents. Otherwise, why would he have these talents to begin with?
He felt the answer was in creating something new, something original, and something cool. At an early age, Gregg, immersed himself in art and found a particular appreciation for urban art. In college, he studied classic drawing and painting, but realizing that this type of living probably wouldn’t support a family, he expanded his abilities to include graphic design also.

The concept behind Modern Bird Studios was born about three years ago as an experiment he had bouncing around in his head. Gregg has always liked to push the boundaries within his art, whether playing with space or combining traditional and non-traditional mediums. He decided to create a piece that utilized technology and painting. Gregg combines his original urban-style with photography, graphic design and traditional painting to create handmade, original art pieces.
Gregg and his wife Megan know that most modern art available is enormously expensive or mass produced and impersonal. Consequently, they have decided to expand this new style of art to those who have the same appreciation for hip, modern style and who desire to have something more personal to them to enrich their homes. 

Modern Bird Studios doesn’t believe in the saying, ‘it’s nothing personal, it’s just business.’ Modern Bird Studios isn’t ‘just’ business, and Modern Bird Studios is something extremely personal to Gregg and to his family.
Check out their FAQ for more info on the process.
