Dave Pollot’s Thrift Store Art


Dave Pollot’s art definitely has a sense of humor. A software engineer by day, Pollot spends his free time giving old paintings a modern, pop culture edge.

It’s actually a joint endeavor. Pollot’s girlfriend of almost four years, Becca, is an avid thrift store rummager. When he’d accompany her on hunts, the couple used to joke about painting funny things on some of the out-dated art work they would come across. And that’s how his comical hobby/ new side-business began. Becca buys the art and Dave revamps it.

The best part of Pollot’s art is that, if you didn’t know any better, you’d almost think his UFOs, robots and Star Wars characters were part of the original paintings.
