This Guy Embeds Popular Society Characters Into Old Thrift Store Depictions

Dave Pollot is a painter in the US who conveys new life to old and overlooked thrift store works of art by including popular society characters. He utilizes these old works of art to join his enthusiasm for painting with his affection for popular society.

“Before I started repurposing tossed thrift craftsmanship, I painted more “genuine” engineering works of art and scenes,” composes Pollot on his site. “While I adored this, I found that I got exhausted rapidly (which brought about around three finished artworks a year). Conveying new life to old craftsmanship, however, carries fascinating difficulties with each new piece. I attempt to make my “augmentations” (which are regularly references to and satires of my most loved motion pictures and computer games) look just as they arrived the whole time. With a world so brimming with genuine inquiries, I’m simply attempting to let viewers chuckle as they build their own account from some new oil paint cleverly added to some old, ignored piece of History of the U.S.”
