My husband and I went to a art show last weekend, we say this wonderful exhibit of "steampunk" art. I never heard of it before but it had a familiar look to me. A short definition: steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980's and early 1990s. In my words "Victorian and modern objects are blended together to become work of art". OK, that wasn't a great explanation but you get the idea. The name of this artist is Brent Scofield and these are a few of his pieces.
A few more of his pieces.
Some of the films that used this type of art were: Wild Wild West (1999), and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
