Have you ever walked around a thrift store and flipped through the piles of cheesy old paintings? Who buys those!? For one, New York-based software engineer and artist Dave Pollot does. He buys these unwanted paintings and alters them into unlikely pop-culture scenarios.
In his funny works of art you can find idyllic landscapes with Star Wars spaceships passing through, a giant Lego sinking in a pristine pond and a strange portrait of a women wearing a Darth Vader mask. Pollot does a fantastic job of mimicking the original artist’s style and colors to seamlessly integrate his invented elements into the old art.
