Steampunkery from beach trash

Here is a good short piece on some steampunk art made from trash:

some cool designs and good use of found parts. And a lot of brass colored paint.

It's cool sci-fi art. I don't know why they would call it "steampunk" though. Too few old watch parts and not enough sense of self-importance...

I think he's the ultimate greeblizer if you ask me. Good eye for the total composition.

Thanks for sharing this with us. It's pretty cool! A lot of COPPER paint went into these creations. Most of the parts look like they're from bath tub toys for kids. Not necessarily steampunk in of itself, but still artsy - fartsy nonetheless. Very cool to see someone reusing these items rather than just trashing them.

I would say it's Steampunkish. Thanks for posting.

I like that some of his work is a tribute to seafaring life forms, which are often harmed by plastic in the ocean.
