Artist on tumblr - Thomas Saliot born 1968 is a French artist living in Marrakech and Paris.

I paint and travel for the last 20 years…
I work « free hand » from photos i find all over the web. It is a bit in the spirit of a blog (terrible word) where i use icomic images like snapshot of our centuries.

I try to do with paintings what Ian Fleming did with literature…

Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential.
