Publisher's description: The Tall Trees of Paris is an essential book for anyone curious about contemporary independent artists living and working in Paris, a city known and loved for its art history. Curated by Matt Wagner of Portland, Oregon's Hellion Gallery, the book features over three dozen Parisian artists who share what they love about their city, give glimpses into their studios, and present their most exemplary work. Each featured artist is a "Tall Tree", an independent creator who stands apart from their peers and boldly answers to their own voice. This is a collection of street artists, illustrators, painters, photographers, sculptors, and mixed media artists. It includes some of whom are internationally known, including Koralie, Amandine Urruty, and Nicholas Barrome, side by side with emerging 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.
