Thrift Shop Monster Paintings
Oct. 17, 2013
We really love shopping at the thrift shops (stop judging us), and if you have spent as much time in thrift shops as us, you generally know what to expect. The one things all thrift shops have in common, is a surplus of landscape paintings in large frames. We have considered buying them to repurpose the frames, but never the art itself. Artists Chris McMahon and Thryza Segal have come up with the most genius idea to repurpose the art: add monsters!
McMahon and Segal make these discarded landscape paintings something completely new and original. They match the type of paint originally used and blend them into the paintings to make it seem like the monsters were always there in the first place. They even go as far as adding their signature with the original artist, for authenticity of course. It seriously looks like the monster walking through a mountain scene was meant to be there, and a water skier pulled by a flying monster looks oddly natural.
