    Steampunk paintings

    A vernissage of the “Wasn’t World” exhibition of steampunk paintings by Vadim Voitekhovitch will take place on June 14th at 7 P.M. His artworks are highly inspired by novels by Jules Verne and portray a futuristic city with steam-powered flying vehicles. The exhibition is open only until the end of June.

    Vadim Voitekhovitch is a painter born in 1963 in Belarus. Since 2004 he lives in Germany and associates himself with German artistic culture. His artworks mirror his fascination with science-fiction, especially steampunk – a trend in literature and art that portrays alternative history where steam-powered machines are still widely used. The pioneers of the movement were Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and Mark Twain.

    Steampunk works are usually settled in the Victorian Era, and Voitekhovitch’s paintings are no different. In the collection “Wasn’t World” the painter shows steam-powered trains, balloons and ‘planes’, all in a city with Victorian architecture. The artworks were created in the last two years to create such an exposition.

    “Wasn’t World” is the first exhibition of Vadim Voitekhovitch’s works in Poland. It’s placed at the Teutsch Gallery on Mazowiecka 11 in Warsaw and will be open until June 30th, 2022.
