Sam Van Olffen is an up-and-coming Steampunk artist you don’t want to miss. This modern sub-genre of art is being brought into the mainstream with help from Olffen, residing in Montpellier in the South of France.

This self-described "graphic sampler" has created some disturbing pieces, many of which have people donning gas masks in dreary colors.

Take a look at the gallery to see a romantic gas mask rendezvous and an even odder masked family portrait.
