Amazing work by the French artist Thomas Saliot who is currently living
between Marrakech and Paris.
He has been painting and travelling for the last 20 years, creating incredibly sensual canvases of young, provocative females. The photographic depiction of light that he is able to portray in his work adds a lustrous glow to his portraits.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
