When the first time I heard about Steampunk wall art, I did not have any idea what is this art genre is all about. I am not an artist nor house and interior designer but I am an art enthusiast and I do appreciate many art forms. I have been decorating my house with many art forms which I got from many sources, from the top source such an art item auction houses as well as those flea markets in many old towns across Europe.
Sometime I am lucky enough to discover true forms of antique art items sold at very reasonably priced just merely because the seller did not know well enough how pricey the item can be in the true art market. Back to Steampunk wall art, I discovered this term of genre in art when I am about to find the right wall art decoration for my spacious garage room where I have been putting several big bikes.
One of my big bike technician, Frank, is happened to be an artist which I only recently discovered although I have been appreciating his work of arts in a form of tattoo which I found so artistic all these years, and he was the one that brought this name of Steampunk wall art to me when we were discussing about all those un-used spare parts which I am about to dispose in some of these days to free up some more space in my (already) spacious garage though.
I learned from Frank, that Steampunk wall art is actually referred to Steam Punk, which is a sub-genre of science fiction that inspired by the fantasy setting of industrialized British Victorian era within a dark post-apocalyptic future. Honestly, I did not get this in the first place when Frank say and talk about this very enthusiastically that day, he seems to be into this thing so much though, and I keep questioning him about this.
He told me, we can make use of those un-used spare parts of big bikes and combine them with many heavy metal made things, from small parts to bigger size ones which some of them I found somehow quite extreme to me though such as those British Victorian metal made toilet and turn them all into an artistic form Steampunk wall art which we can put them and hang them nicely on our garage walls which brings sense of an ambience of an old timer too.
