Tara McPherson in Dedication> Wednesday 17 June

No connection with Obama's coming on our lands, there is no special historical event to celebrate with us except the fact that we are still Trrrrrès happy to welcome American artists in our humble space. Especially when it comes to talented Tara McPherson. For those who have just woke up (no problem, I love hibernation), Tara became known in the Underground environment thanks to his omnipresence in the middle of Rock Poster and among others for classic group tours such as that Melvins, Kings of Leon, Mastodon, Death Cab for Cutie, The Strokes. It is learned even in his bio that she taffé for Futurama, which probably leaves him traces when we look at his monsters of space. His illustrator talents exceeded the borders and it was already his 2nd European Tour since she had fooled our holy land in 2006. Its style is quite significant with some gimmicks that have made its style essential: use of pastel colors, recurring characters in the form of balloons with big eyes, charming and luscious young women with broken heart (literally pierced) whose eyeliner flowers with delicacy On their players, squelle flowers that should only grow on arid lands of cemeteries, astronauts in animal outfits. A touching and smiling universe, mixing nostalgia for youth and fallen love. His rating in the middle of the art continues to climb, and we are already waiting for his next massive Solo Show at Jonathan Levine planned for the end of 2010. The previous had definitively installed Tara in the upper category. In the meantime, she will come dedicate her new book LOST Constellations; The Art of Tara McPherson Flight II released at Darkhorse, but also his first set of mini-figurines Gamma Mutant Space Friends, freshly released at Kidrobot. Come many at Artoyz Paris, Wednesday, June 17, 2009, from 18h to 20h.
