The work of Tomas Saliot, an online diary of paintings based on and inspired by photography randomly picked from the internet, gives away a cinematographic feeling that is all about summer. Sexy, salty, summery.

Tomas lives between Paris and Marakesh and has been travelling and painting for the last 20 years. You can definately get then, the cosmopolitan feeling that marks his work. For the last 5 years though, he has been populating his online portfolio with diary-like posts of his paintings in a way that, in his own words, “It is a bit in the spirit of a blog (terrible word) where i use iconic images like snapshot of our centuries.”
