ABOUT THIS VIDEO: When working with metal, you need a true teacher to give life to your work of art. The Russian artist Igor Verniy does just that with his beautiful and elegant sculptures of articulated steampunk animals. Its moving parts and Verniy’s attention to detail make them come alive.
A lot of work goes on behind the scenes before Verniy creates his artwork. Observe the living counterparts of your creations to make sure you capture your movements in the right way. Then, assemble them from various pieces of scrap: old car parts, bicycle parts, clock movements, crockery and anything else that fits.
Bored Panda approached Igor to talk about his work,
“In the end, I’m an artist and I see the beauty of this world in bright colors, but I’m also a technician,” Igor Verniy told Bored Panda. “The combination of these two qualities has led to the creation of metal models”
Igor says he is inspired by the “outside world,” in particular biology and the question of the origin of life. and all the natural sciences, and dreams about the future of human civilization. ”
“Many people bring me old items that I can do in my store, but I also buy many items at the markets and collect them in the garages of my brothers and friends. All the parts are ordered by category ”
“Feel free to dream childishly with unattainable things, because this always pushes people forward.”
