Art For Thrift's Sake

Canadian artist David Irvine has been making art for 25 years, specializing in “found art” projects such as the “Re-Directed Art” series, where he injects junk art with new life by inserting iconic, popular culture images or concepts into original works. “These unwanted works were bought at thrift stores, yard sales, and even salvaged from the curb,” Irvine tells RealClearLife. “I’ve taken great care to touch up any scratches or marks and then added in my own visions,” he continues. “Ninety-percent are prints or lithographs, and the remainder are anonymous paint by numbers.”
