Dave Pollot geeky additions to thrift store paintings 8

Wandering through the aisles of your local thrift store can be a great time. From finding stylish vintage threads, to rummaging through piles of books to find that hidden gem, there’s always a lot to see… but there’s often an overlooked pile of old paintings too. Those amateur works of art haven’t escaped the eye of New York artist Dave Pollot – or his paintbrush for that matter. He’s been giving old paintings a truly geeky makeover, adding characters like ‘Bender’ from Futurama and the ‘Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’ from Ghostbusters to the recycled canvases.

Danae Stratou Desert Breath 1

Viewed from above, the Land Art project Desert Breath looks too perfect to be real.

Sometimes when we see amazing art it’s easy to just think “oh that person must be really gifted” but this progression gives hope that maybe anybody can create beautiful art if they are willing to put in the effort. Jake Lockett has been making art since he could pick up a pen at age 2 and shared with us a progression album on his website showcasing a couple pieces of art from almost every year from age 2 to his current 24 years of age. Each year his art grows a little more technical and then diverges into his unique style. It’s really awesome to see this artist’s journey laid out in picture form and would be interesting to see the childhood works from other highly regarded artists too. [Read more...]
