M Modern Gallery Announces New Artist George Perrou with a Solo Exhibition in March

Palm Springs, CA – February 25th, 2010:  M Modern Gallery of Palm Springs, CA announces it’s new representation of artist George Perrou.  The gallery had begun selling Perrou’s original paintings and limited edition prints earlier this month for Palm Springs annual Modernism Week festivities and is presenting a solo exhibition of his original paintings with the upcoming “Modscape My World” show.

M Modern will host an opening reception for the concurrently running “Modscape My World” and Zoey Stevens’ “Alice In Wunderland” shows on Friday, March 12th, 2010 from 7:30-10:00.  The reception is free and open to the public.

Perrou’s artwork aligns with the Mid-Century Modernist aesthetic which M Modern’s specialization is internationally known.  Best described as ‘Mod-Culture’, Perrou’s style is a natural fit with M Modern.  “I am honored to be represented by M Modern,” says Perrou, “and this show is comprised of paintings which ‘Modscape’ my world.”

George Perrou’s art is inspired by mid-century animation, and gives nods to Miro, Kandinsky and Calder. Channeling the the Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. cartoons of his youth, Perrou's is a style all his own, painting colorful abstractions of reality onto the canvas using retro and modern colors in acrylic.  George lives and paints in the creative epicenter of Portland, Oregon.

M Modern Gallery specializes in mid-century modernist art, designs and objects, and is dedicated to serving its artists, patrons and collectors.  Their new venue SHAG The Store Grand Opening is May 8th.  M Modern Gallery ( was founded in 2003, and is located at 2500 N.
