A true artist can breathe life into any material – be it canvas, wood or metal. Igor Verniy from Russia is one such artist that creates lively steampunk animal sculptures using recycled metal parts. A lot of work goes into the creation of every detail. Moreover, the moving parts make each structure come alive.
Verniy creates birds, bats, butterflies, fishes and other unusual creations that grab the attention of the viewers. Most of his cyberpunk sculptures are made to be fully articulated to enable each piece to pose in several life-like positions. This makes his artwork absolutely exquisite and unique at the same time.
To create each sculpture, he often observes natural counterparts of his creation to ensure their movements are captured just right. Next step is to collect and assemble various pieces of scrap metal such as old car parts, electronics, bike parts, clock movements, tableware, etc.
