    I think presente means current or cutting edge, maybe avant garde in this case, but let's wait to hear from a native Spanish speaker.

    Paris is one of those cities whose artists are avant garde.

    Maria, "Presente" in this case means that the artist have always Paris on their minds and therefore it is reflected on their work.

    Hope you can help me!..

    thanks danii

    ¡Hola Danii! // Hi Danii!

    Correcto, significa que el artista siempre tiene a Paris en su mente cuando hace sus obras. // Right, it means that the artist always keep Paris in their mind when doing their works.

    Así que tal vez lo resolviste tú solo. Porque creo que una buena opción podría ser: // So maybe you figure it out by yourself. Because I think that a good option could be:

    "Paris is one of those cities that it's reflected in the artist's works."

    Espero que te sea de ayuda // Hope this could help you.
