His novels criticize a society dominated by selfishness and careerism where man is managed by his instincts of power and domination. His writing is "simple and straightforward. He relies heavily on dialogue to convey his ideas, rather than narration or description". His work is a historical study in the guise of a novel.
Salamé has listed Gerard Mordillat, Sun Tse, Jacques Baudouin and Guillaume Musso as his literary influences.
Salamé's paintings depict serene nature in cheerful and lively colors, in a personal and naive style.
He has exhibited in Lebanon, Paris, Switzerland and Belgium.
