STEAMPUNK is an art, fashion and culture movement inspired by the industrial revolution. Originally it was a literary genre, a subset of science fiction, with the first authors of the genre considered to be Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. Over the last ten years the Steampunk trend has exploded in movies, fashion, and art. Many now see steampunk as something that is an art form, a dream, a wardrobe, and even a lifestyle.
The steampunk art combines imagery from the industrial era (machine parts like cogs and rivets, clockwork, and laboratory equipment) with the art, design, literature and technology of the Victorian era and early 20th century, and futuristic concepts such as robotics and AI.
Steampunk art has a distinct and unique style, and (which is the main thing for us!) It looks absolutely great on metal!
