Dave Pollot is a New York based artist who is best known for his altered thrift art paintings. Pollot finds abandoned artworks and adds his own touch (most often pop culture parodies). Dave says the biggest challenge is not only taking some piece of pop culture and putting it into a place where it might not belong, but also making it blend in so that it actually seems that it belongs.
In a 2015 Instagram feature, Pollot adds:
“Art these days — and I will be careful with my words — I think it’s become a little too serious. So I think it’s kind of nice to sometimes take a step back and just laugh at art.”
