Meet Gregory Allen Page, Martin Mooney, and The Vanguards Of Modern Impressionism

Market demand for modern impressionism has experienced a sharp uptick within the past decade.

Redolent of 19th century french impressionism, a cadre of young gifted modern impressionists has risen, buttressed by the substructure of a flourishing market underneath to support its advance into the contemporary art scene.

Today’s impressionism- which like its 19th century French counterpart- is distinguished by its small, threadlike brushstrokes often depicting natural landscapes with a range of movement or passage of time- is best embodied by fashionable artists such as Martin Mooney, Kerry Hallam, Duaiv, and Gregory Allen Page.

The driving thrust of these works are the subtle, yet emotionally stirring portrayal of the dynamism in nature. Powerful scenes of rolling natural forces as interpreted through the perspective of the human emotions they elicit.

Duaiv and Gregory Allen Page’s work– in particular- capture this dynamism with particular vigor.

Page’s works- which are housed across leading galleries internationally- are known for establishing a flowing style of movement realism that has been a spark for other contemporary artists to try to echo in their own works.

Notable works of Page’s – such as Giraffe’s In Africa (as seen above) and the America’s Cup Sailboat Race (see below) have set new touchstones for a charged depiction of movement within modern impressionism.

Other notable artists- such as Martin Mooney- take softer, more soothing approaches to landscapes.

In Mooney’s paintings, the mood is less charged, more languid.

What defines value for each of these artists and their collector constituencies seems not to be the gusto of their works, but more precisely, how well they are able to execute on their own unique viewpoint of the wold.

So for the discerning collector seeking vitality, a Duaiv or a Page is a great place to start, and for the pleasant and picturesque look no further than Mooney.

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
