Second Life Paintings

    Rochester, New York artist Dave Pollot transforms paintings from thrift shops by adding pop culture characters and objects to old paintings. He incorporates new elements and tries to keep the original integrity of the painting.

    It came to me at a thrift store. I wanted to take something that had been forgotten and change it in a way that didn’t affect its aesthetic and to see if that, in and of itself, would make it wanted again.
