About this title

Synopsis:

"Matt Wagner’s portrait of Parisian artists is part showcase of their eclectic work, part insider’s tour of the City of Lights." The Toronto Star

Paris, the city many consider the birthplace of modern art, is a place where contemporary artists look to the past to reinvent it. Award-winning author Matt Wagner chronicles 42 of these Parisian artists in The Tall Trees of Paris, the third installment in the “Tall Trees” series. Their work is shown alongside handwritten questionnaires detailing each of the artists’ favorite things about their neighborhood, painting an artistic panorama of the City of Light. This is a collection of street artists, illustrators, painters, photographers, sculptors, and mixed media artists. Far from the traditional art anthology, this book provides a view into a moment-- a snapshot and a pulse check-- on working artists in the City of Light. The book is as much a travel book as it is an art book. Wagner lets the art speak for itself, and instead asks questions about where the artists live, how they spend their time, and where they like to eat, drink, shop and play. Their responses are handwritten in a beautifully laid out bilingual English/French translation, providing the reader with a visual thread between the person and the place. The only other way to access this exclusive account would be to travel to France and spend a week with the artists themselves--which is exactly what Matt Wagner has done.
