Artist Adds Pop Culture Characters To Boring Thrift Store Paintings

Published 1 year ago

Not all art is equally good or creative. That’s why Dave Pollot is giving a pop culture twist to thrift store paintings. He collects these pieces of forgotten, amateur art, and adds characters like Cthulhu, Sonic or Mario to them. Pollot then sells these spruced-up pieces on Etsy.

Pollot studied Computer Science, but he has always been interested in art. He had difficulty with it, as he finds painting landscape and architecture boring. “Bringing new life to old art, though, brings interesting challenges with each new piece,” Pollot writes on his website. “With a world so full of serious questions, I’m just trying to let viewers laugh as they construct their own narrative from some new oil paint humorously added to some old, neglected bit of Americana.”
