Insta Art Dave Pollot Expresso

Insta-Art: Dave Pollot

 

Art imitates life, and sometimes it imitates pop culture too. Fans of many movie franchises and games are always looking for exclusive memorabilia to add to their collection.

 

With that in mind, today we are profiling Dave Pollot, a software engineer who describes himself as someone who ‘...spends his nights with a beer in one hand and paintbrush in the other.’ He transforms old art found in thrift stores, usually landscapes, into works of art that features popular characters from movies and games.

 

From the likes of Darth Vader to Sonic The Hedgehog, the contrast of the older backgrounds with the added newer characters makes for some retro art that any pop culture fan will jump at the chance to buy.

He has exhibited at many comic conventions and even has a very successful online store which regularly sells out of artworks.

 

You can see all of the awesome artworks on Instagram @DavePollotArt and check out his website www.davepollot.com to marvel at these one of a kind fanboy favourites.
