Pop Culture Icons Like Thanos, Godzilla And The Matrix Leap Out Of This Artist’s Imagination And Into Old Paintings

Pop Culture Icons Like Thanos, Godzilla And The Matrix Leap Out Of This Artist’s Imagination And Into Old Paintings

Artist Dave Pollot does something we all want to do, but only someone like Banksy actually does. He finds kind of lame paintings and then enhances them with his own pop culture spin. The results are hilarious, often-subversive but always beautiful hybrids you won’t be able to talk your eyes off of.
