Modern Realist Portraits Digital Art Exhibition

WISE VA -- The Modern Realist movement was a prominent American and British artistic style in the late 20th Century. Influenced by consumerism, the images of this period are colorful and glamourous.

"These portraits were intended to be bold and colorful," Allio said. "Several began as black-and-white photographs and were digitally hand-colored for effect. The resulting artworks are far more modern in style than those of my traditional Impressionist period works."

As a common theme, each original image was selected and the finished artwork was named for a mythological goddess. The individual names were based on unique personal characteristics of the model.

Ten different models were selected for this exhibition. Each projected their own personal sense of fun, style, and glamour into their finished artwork.

Allio was born in the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Communications and Visual Arts. His nude fine artworks have been exhibited worldwide.
