Bionic Steampunk Animals by Igor Verniy

Traditional sculptures are graceful, but today’s creatives have found a way to make things pretty interesting. Such is the series of steampunk animals created by Igor Verniy, who sculpts things out of scrap.

Using things we often neglect like old bike chains, scrap metal, and silverware, “Iggy” creates really beautiful animals like butterflies, birds, and others. The cyberpunk and steampunk influence is a huge contrast to the nature-inspired creations, making his sculptures unique and boast their own interesting charm.

What makes these cool wouldn’t just be the dissonant blend of industrial and natural, but also the fact that there are moving parts which allow the pieces to be moved into lifelike poses. There is little about him online, but that’s okay as the Russian artist’s works pretty much speak for themselves.

Here are some of TAE’s favs:
