Repurposed paintings

David Irvine has a knack for uncovering the possibility in items and making them new and exciting once again. He recently released a series called "Re-Directed Art." He took old, boring thrift store artwork and made it into fun, interesting paintings. He "re-directs" the paintings in the sense that with his additions, he changes the focus, theme, or narrative. He uses something already imagined as his canvas to create something new. Check out his paintings below.

Living Paintings by Alexa Meade
Katarina
13 nov 2014 11:56

The artworks that Alexa Meade makes are very unique and original. A usual painter creates a 2D or a 3D drawing on flat 2D surface. Alexa, on the other hand, draws over the body of a regular person, making them look like a 2D painting. The pictures of these people are almost uncanny, as you realize that the eyes “paintings” are real, and suddenly it dawns upon you that you are seeing a living and breathing human being. It is weird how we perceive this world, and how easy it is to trick our...

Emulsifier is a hand painted sculpture made of 160 glass strips by Austrian artist Thomas Medicus that looks like one of four different images, depending on what angle you view it from. While the anamorphic installation looks like a floating fish from one perspective, it can also look like a flying bird from another. Each image is reveal as the cube-like structure rotates, allowing the painted glass strips to align precisely on each side.
