Winner in Arts

About Dave Pollot

Take that which is old and unwanted and make it new and relevant again, and that’s Dave Pollot’s approach to creating art. He made his name on social media by finding oil paintings at thrift stores and adding new life to them, often in the form of pop culture references and other modern twists bridging the gaps between old-and-forgotten and new-and-relevant. This combination of cleverness and technique has netted Dave a lot of acclaim, not to mention a fanbase of 120K+ followers on Instagram. They say art imitates life, and by adding everything from McDonald’s french fries, emojis and Supreme logos, Dave makes sure that stays true.
