Thomas Saliot has been painting and traveling for the last 20 years. Thomas describes his work by saying, “I work ‘free hand’ from photos I find all over the web. It is a bit in the spirit of a blog where I use iconic images like snapshot of our centuries ”.
“ I studied in Paris in ESAG, met de Penninghen for 3 years, then a years in Beaux arts in Versaille. I never was the 4 years old with a gift and a passion for drawing, all came with work and time.
I had a gallery for 10 years in the Marais in Paris. I did various exhibitions but i doubt a list would help you much. Mostly working with Saatchi art since 2012. Art online and social network is the best thing that ever happen to artists. Live wherever, ship your work, promote yourself and have a constant feedback on your work !!
All my work is oil on canvas, « free hand » from photos i do or find all over the web. It is a bit in the spirit of a blog (terrible word) where i use iconic images like snapshot of our centuries. I always liked the sound of Pop art and i think that is where i belong, a mildly modernized version. Have a fondness nowadays for Artiste like Jeremy lipking, Malcolm liepke, Robert mcginnis, John Currin,David Hockney, John Kacere,…
I live in Majorca, Spain, where i paint simple iconic images from the net or my life, like big oil sketches. I have been painting professionally for over thirty years. Sort of a child of Hopper, figurative and Pop art, i love colors, provocation and big canvas ”. – Thomas Saliot
