    Through his whimsical gouche paintings, Matte Stephens has created a world filled with friendly characters and warm moments that are flavored with nostalgia. Dapper foxes, chirping birds, pipe smoking penguins, turn of the century explorers all inhabit a space on his canvas. Even Monsieur Hulot stops by for the fun. The entire cast make an appearance in Matte’s new book, Matte Stephens Selected Works (Oeuvres choisies). Published by Editions Alto in Quebec, the stunning cloth-bound book highlights many of his most cherished paintings as well as his lesser known works.

    Copies of Matte Stephens Selected Works (Oeuvres choisies) are available at Matte’s Etsy shop and Editions Alto.
