Thrifted Art

Can you take a piece of discarded art and turn it into something everyone would want? That was the question that sparked a challenge in Dave Pollot after several trips with his thrift loving wife. In 2012 he took the challenge head on and began taking artwork from second hand stores and, using the same technique of the original pieces, recreating the image with a touch of modern day culture. Now his masterpieces have made there way across the United States and into 40 countries world wide. Each piece not only re-imagines the artwork, but it takes a deeper look into the modern distractions that keep us from being present. Dave’s personal journey through his artwork and exploration of techniques has created a beautiful catalog of pop culture infused classics ready for individual interpretation.
