Virtueel Museum, the óther contemporary art - p 31

A new tendency in art, becoming quite popular, is often called steampunk. Although this ridiculous name, it clearly refers to a particular contemporary art style. Important features are could-have-been fantasy, retro, machinery and compositions with wheels. With could-have-been fantasy as a source of inspiration, we mean how people fantasied about the future in the end of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. That's why the airship is a popular feature. Just before the second world war it was clear that the airship was the future and not the airplanes, because airships were economicaly a far greater succes. But as a result of politics, sabotage and being vulnerable in war, the airship lost the competition. Another important source of inspiration was the mechanic of pocket watches, which one could often open to look at. Artists are both traditional painters in oil or acryl, and digital painters, it's often hard to see the difference. We have already shown such artists on some previous pages, but now we dedicated this page to many other steampunk artists.
