Salamon has exhibited widely for 30 years. He has had 5 solo museum shows, over 30 solo gallery shows, and is in over a dozen permanent museum collections. After being the official artist for the Grammy Awards in the 1990s, Salamon began painting more personal work of his family, friends, and fellow artists. Portraiture has remained a significant interest throughout his career. His subjects currently vary widely from narrative scene paintings to allegorical compositions, historical objects, and still-lifes of everyday pleasures. His most recent works are large portraits of artists and societal trailblazers using drafting pencils on multiple sheets of vellum paper or charcoal on unstretched, unprimed canvas. Salamon has produced dozens of short films, creates figurative sculptures in various mediums, and is also a museum curator and punk rock musician. Salamon has been a long-time Southern California resident and graduated summa cum laude from California State University, Los Angeles.
