Russian artist Igor Vernity creates steampunk animals from old things, like car parts, watches and electronics. When working with metal, it takes a true master to breathe life into their artwork. He does just that with his gorgeous and stylish articulated steampunk animal sculptures. Their moving parts and obtains attention to detail makes them come alive.
A great work & dedication goes on behind the scenes before his actual effort creates his artwork. Vernity observes his creations’ living counterparts to ensure that he captures their movements’ just right. Then, he assembles them from numerous pieces of scrap metal, old car parts, bike parts, clock movements, tableware, and anything else that fit in his artwork. He says; at heart, I’m artist, and I see the beauty of earth in bright colors, because the combination of good qualities has led to the creation of metal models.
I’m really inspired by the outside world in particular biology and the question of origin of life. I’m also inspired from natural science, and dreams about the future of human civilization. I know, several individuals bring me old items that I can make in my shop, but I also buy a lot of objects at flea markets and collect them in the garages of my brother and friends. All parts are sorted by category. Feel free to dream childishly about unattainable things, because this always pushes people forward.
