Paris, France — One of our favorite characters is back in town and he is showing you around Paris from a cat’s point of view. He takes you to some of the more iconic stops in Paris like the Hôtel du Nord, the rue de Seine, the Ile de la Cité (that’s where the Sainte-Chapelle is) and the Sacré Coeur on Montmartre and the Quai du Louvre with the romantic Pont des Arts and the dashing French Institute in the background. The contemporary Franco-Swiss artist M. Chat, an accomplished street and pop artist, left his cat portraits throughout the city where some of them remain to this day proffering a joyful and creative character that is ever so endearing. The Parisian Galerie Brugier-Rigail  is paying tribute to M. Chat, the artist also known as Thoma Vuille in an exhibition entitled M.Chat an Urban Journey running until January 14th. Our joyful cat is there with his Cheshire-cat like smile. You can almost hear him purring. And that contagious smile is found all over the world today in the urban landscapes of New York, Hong Kong, Dakar, Seoul and beyond.  The works on display are mainly acrylic on canvas or on paper, signed and unique pieces. ©Trish Valicenti for The Gourmet Gazette
