This is cool -- Dave Pollot is a Rochester artist who buys thrift store artworks (mostly prints and lithographs), and paints in pop-culture additions.

I would hang this on my wall, if the size and frame were right:

... He buys thrift store paintings and perfectly "enhances" them with pop culture symbols, giving a cool, nerdy spin to what's dusting away inside cracked frames.

"Most are prints or lithographs," he told Bored Panda. "Any scratches or marks are carefully touched up and then my own visions are added." Before focusing on repurposing discarded thrift art, Dave painted more ‘serious’ architectural paintings and landscapes. Now, however, he's completely devoted to his new passion.

"Concepts range from pop culture to dada themes. What was once destined for a landfill is now an appreciated piece of art and conversation piece." Luckily, it's still an ongoing series so there should be more of these to come

Those fishing lessons with dad paid off for Luke in the long run.
