Artist Turns Old Thrift Store Paintings Into Geeky Masterpieces

How much fun is this series?

I love seeing what artist come up with. In his latest series, “Re-Directed Art,” artist David Irvine takes existing “boring” paintings that he finds at thrift stores and turns them into geeky masterpieces. Irvine adds his artistic touch and re-directs the focus of each painting by blending pop culture icons like Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Darth Vader, Spider-Man, Batman, and Slimer into the existing scenery.

Irvine will often imitate the style of the original painting he alters by using the same brushstrokes, coloring, and lighting. But sometimes, he’ll go the opposite direction to achieve a high contrast in imagery.

Irvine’s work is available for purchase on EtsyRedbubble, and Society6.
