Artist Dave Pollot inserts famous pop-culture icons into thrift store paintings.

Creating what he calls "art with a sense of humor," Pollot’s pieces are beautiful and clever. As someone who lives in a house filled with these thrift store paintings that all seem to blend together, Pollot helps me to see them in a new light. A software engineer by trade, Dave Pollot uses art as a tool to balance his left and right brain. His girlfriend collects thrift store paintings, so it was inevitable that one day the two would collide. By painting pop culture figures into these old thrift store paintings, Pollot is helping to give them new life and hopefully a home with new owners.

Dave Pollot also offers prints of his pop-culture thrift store paintings on his Etsy store.
