Artist Improves Thrift Store Paintings With Geeky Additions

This is art.

Dave Pollot specializes in something he calls "repurposed thrift art." The idea is that he finds discarded paintings in thrift stores and adds in one or two pop culture references to make them something entirely different.

The results are fantastic (via io9), as you get these serene landscapes with R2-D2 and C-3PO walking along.

Or Godzilla heading back to the sea after restoring a balance to the world.

If you want to see more of Pollot's work, head over to his official website or his Etsy page, where you can buy some of the paintings.
