I have been falling in love with portraiture lately. Recently I was introduced to the work of French painter Thomas Saliot. His modern portraits really appeal to me. He is inspired by imagery on the web, and his pieces are truly snapshots of real life. He takes a moment that looks as if it’s from Instagram or Facebook, and turns it into art with his brush. Here are just a few of my favorites. My goal is to bring one of these pieces home this year.
You can find Thomas’ work on Saatchi.
