M Modern Gallery was founded in Palm Springs, California on May 9th, 2003 by the husband and wife team of Jay Nailor & MiShell Modern. For over 10 years we have provided the highest caliber artworks from fine artists in the Lowbrow/Pop Surrealist Genres and focused primarily on works by the artist SHAG (aka Josh Agle).
SHAG the store (also located in Palm Springs) was opened in May of 2010 to offer fine art works, books and other merchandise solely from the artist SHAG. It is the only gallery in the world dedicated to SHAG's works and we encourage you to visit the store next time you happen to visit Palm Springs.
Cur8L8 is another company under the M Modern umbrella and was formed in 2012 to curate art projects for both commercial and residential projects. A web site is currently being developed and should launch shortly. Recent projects include two bars in the Downtown Las Vegas area being COMMONWEALTH & PARK ON FREMONT. Please stop by these great establishments and check out the amazing artworks by artists such as Mark Ryden, SHAG, Joshua Keys, Travis Louis, David Stoupakis, Heidi Taillefer and more..
Currently, we have Emmett Gates Jr. (aka Iceberg Slick) as co-curator for our M Modern Gallery, Inc. projects. We welcome Emmett as he breathes some new life into the M Modern Gallery, Inc. brand!
