Steampunk Art From Gear-Headed Superheros to Antiqued Disney

 - Mar 13, 2013
Steampunk art essentially captures a genre of science fiction that includes futuristic looks and devices created with vintage methods. It is a very surreal genre and possesses a large following of fans. Steampunk almost represents the perfect balance of old and new.

The artwork inspired by this genre that is created is generally very intriguing and hauntingly beautiful. It usually includes a lot of steam and gear-powered machinery as well as Victorian era fashion. Steampunk art has also created magnificent crossovers that include transforming iconic figures from pop culture into surreal and antiqued depictions. Such icons include Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Black Cat from Spiderman and Han Solo from Star Wars. Batman is a fantastic example too, especially because he has a lot of gadgets and these translate well into steampunk-inspired creations.
