The Tall Trees of Paris, a flamboyant coffee table art book from Portland gallery owner and curator, Matt Wagner, introduces readers to the colorful world of Parisian artists from the point of view of the artists themselves.

Published by Overcup Press, the oversize tomb catalogues 42 contemporary artists in their natural habitat. With 288 pages of vibrant renderings, The Tall Trees of Paris is a modern art lovers dream.

Intriguing and imaginative The Tall Trees of Paris presents each of the following artists in a bilingual questionnaire, French and English, that has them describe their craft, where they live, the neighborhood, favorite haunts, restaurants, bars and museums they visit.

The responses form a modern contemporary Parisians art tour. Not simply The Louvre, which rarely appears on any of the 42 featured artist’s favorite museum response, the artists of Tall Trees take readers into the vibrant neighborhoods, a behind the scenes tour, that are flourishing today.

Featured in The Tall Trees of Paris, along with work samples and studio pictures are: 2Shy, Alëxone, Alexandra Arango, Céline Artigau, Nicolas Barrome Forgues, Martes Bathori, Blek Le Rat, Agnes Boulloche, Broll & Prascida, Thierry Bruet, Ludovic Debeurme, Veronique Dorey, Dugudus, Elobo, Christelle Enault, Agnès Ernoult, Sébastien Féraut (Niark1), Christian Guemy (c215), HONET, Kerascoët, Koleo, Koralie, Eric Lacan (Monsieur Qui), Hubert de Lartigue, Jean Leblanc, Jean Lecointre, Lek & Sowat, Levalet, Nicolas Martin, Jean-Michel Ouvry, Tristan Pernet, Aurore Petit, Bruno Pontiroli, Francesca Protopapa (il Pistrice), Sebastien Preschoux, RERO, Jérémy Schneider, Supakitch, Sébastien Touache, TYRSA, Amandine Urruty, and Frédérique Vernillet.

The Tall Trees of Paris is a pulsating and energetic follow up to The Tall Trees of Tokyo and The Tall Trees of Portland.  Bound in landscape size the volume is filled with exciting information of the new Paris, avant-garde, exciting, the captivating city of lights.

Not simply modern art, each of the artists represent the art of a city that is known as the city where art is learned, the craft cultivated, respected. Modern works of the exaggerated caricature style to Salvador Dali surrealism inspired renditions as well as modern impressionist art is included.

A transformative and captivating collection of art that allows the readers to experience Paris from a refreshing authentic perspective, The Tall Trees of Paris provides an uncharacteristic and nonconforming look of the world’s greatest and most celebrated cities.

The Tall Trees of Paris is set for release May 10, 2016.
