Artist Dave Pollot ongoing project started in 2012 as a joke between him and his wife. He challenged himself to take a piece of unwanted artwork, and without changing its style, make it into something that people wanted to own. This started his “obsession” with painting, and he’s been altering art works ever since.
He is working with thrift store paintings and transforms them into his own masterpieces.
By seamlessly integrating elements from pop culture, the scenes featuring still life, boats at sea, and bucolic landscapes are given a surreal twist with additions like fast food, SpongeBob, and horror film monsters.
