Artists Dave Pollot, who describes himself as a "software engineer who spends his nights with a beer in one hand and paintbrush in the other," is showing video game characters in a new light
He repurposes unwanted art found at thrift stores by adding video game characters and other sci-fi people and objects into them.
The results are most definitely eye-catching. Luigi standing in a field of daises looks somewhat strange, sure, but I can't seem to look away.
Pollot describes his work as "art with a sense of humor." You can see a selection of his creations in the gallery below.
His paintings are also available to buy on crafts site etsy.
