A very popular ongoing series of work that David Irvine has called ‘Re-Directed Art’.
These are existing, unwanted paintings (prints, lithographs or occasionally, original pieces) that he has located at thrift shops,yard sales and has even salvaged from the curb. He then will paint in his own characters, unusual imagery or pop culture icons to give a tired piece a renewed life. In every Re-Directed painting that he does, David will never paint over the existing signature and depending on the project will adapt the traits of the original (coloring, lighting, brushstrokes etc.) or will go in a complete opposite direction and achieve a high contrast in imagery.
