Nikolay Savinkov’s aim is to prove that art can be created not only with cheap materials, like black steel or crude iron, but also without fine jewelry tools. So he launched his own small enterprise, Nik Faber. Most of his works recall steampunk art. Savinkov explains.
We live in an époque of plastic, when things are replicated in their millions and break quickly. This is why steampunk is popular, I guess – it represents a time when people were building something to last for centuries with its brutal Victorian-age beauty.
