Thrift Store Paintings Get Geeky Makeovers

I’ve seen many artists who do “Piggyback Art”, but few hold my attention the way David Irvine of the Gnarled Branch does. He makes whimsical furniture, Gothic sculptures and what he calls “Re-Directed Paintings”. Irvine finds old or discarded thrift store paintings and brings them back to life, adding all kinds of geeky pop culture characters. Below are just a few examples.

He sells the paintings and prints on Etsy, Society 6 and Red Bubble. You can also see more of his artwork on his Facebook page. I love these pieces.
