Legion Paper has had a long program of featuring artists using their papers. As a major distributor, Legion provides fine art papers to the art suppliers you shop, such as McPherson’s, Blick Art Supplies, etc. Legion has plans to add new papers to their list of papers here.
The good people at Legion Paper say–“Making paper is an art. We represent centuries of tradition and mastery in fine art papers. Since our 1994 inception, we have traveled the globe searching for the finest papers from the finest manufacturers. To date, we offer more than three thousand existing papers from sixteen countries but our quest continues. Collaborating with some of the most legendary artists and renowned mills, we are known as the world’s most relentless innovator in the art of papermaking. We constantly aim to be ahead of the curve. We listen to your needs and seek out new ways for you to enhance your work. We add value to creative work. We put vision into paper. We are paper.”
If you are an artist using any of Legion’s fine art papers, we want to hear from you. From communications with Legion’s CEO and Marketing Department, we will now be sending them artist’s contact information for those artists who use their papers.
Recently, Legion featured artist, Tahiti Pehrson, who used Lenox 100 paper in 72 inch rolls for all of his hand-cut paper structures. Tahiti Pehrson just complete art at Viacom’s Artist-in-residence and Legion did an interview with him–read it here.
