Toronto, Ontario-based artist David Irvine, of The Gnarled Branch, creates what he refers to as ‘Re-directed Paintings.’ He takes unremarkable paintings found in thrift store and flea markets and whimsically enhances them by strategically painting in pop culture characters and references. Old paintings that had been gathering dust and may well have ended up in a landfill are revived and transformed thanks to Irvine’s skilled and playful hand.
David Irvine sells his Re-directed Paintings as well as prints via Etsy, Society 6 and Red Bubble. He also accepts commissions.
