What do a vintage lighthouse painting and Star Wars have in common? For Dave Sherrill, who produces novelty art under the alias DaveRuinsArt, the answer is a mega hit on Reddit that kickstarted his professional career as an artist based in down-town Canton.
Inspired by street artist Banksy, Sherrill’s brand of "ruining art" makes over vintage landscapes, thrifted or found online, with pop culture references. Since going viral and extending his online presence using TikTok, Dave now makes his living through his online shop, Arrowhead Goods, and local art shows where you can buy one-of-a-kind pieces for a few hundred dollars, or a $20 print.
