David Irvine is the talented artist behind the Gnarled Branch. The self-professed illustrator and crafter is known for his whimsical furniture, his Gothic sculptures and what he describes as ‘Re-Directed Paintings’.

Featured below is his ongoing series of re-directed paintings where Irvine finds old and/or discarded thrift store paintings and revives them by adding a recognizable character or two. The artist sells the paintings along with prints of the pieces on Etsy, Society 6 and Red Bubble.

The artist is also always available for commissions and you can see much more of his artwork on his Facebook page. To keep up with the latest, be sure to check out David at the online links below.
