“Steampunk Lion.”

asd__880My name is Paula Duță and I’m an interior designer from Romania. And I just love to draw.
Here is one work that I’m especially fond of.
The Steampunk Lion is a 100/70 cm drawing on which I used different markers, pens, watercolors and a lot of other materials.

“Kinetic Steampunk Bar”.

542The authors of the entire design concept, namely the Romanian based designers Alexandru Tohotan and Zoltan Zelenyak, previously responsible for the creation of two other worth mentioning works such as The Submarine and Joben Bistro, strike again, this time with an even more unique piece of artistry.
And when we say unique, we mean world-wide unique.
How’s that for brilliant?

A giant moving clock which gives the impression that you are actually inside it, dozens of finely designed steampunk details, rotating wheels, metallic flowers opening up on the ceiling, a live moving bird and even a robot, these are the core attractions of the Romanian pub.

And it is indeed quite a wonder of design.
The works took almost two years to come to life, but the efforts are well worthwhile, offering an unparalleled experience for having your regular cup of coffee at a bar.

Fota’s “Surrealism”.

Cosmogony-series-Surreal-spacey-sci-fi-oil-paintings8__880Hello, my name is Victor Fota,
I’m a visual artist from Romania.
I started working on this series of oil paintings, 2 years ago.
They mostly combine science facts and theories that are illustrated with a twist, using my personal, artistic perception of reality.
The concept is based on the objective or rational observation of reality which is distorted by our senses and personal understanding in a subjective way, the result being the world we know.

“Salina Turda Theme Park”.

salina-turda-5[6]Salina Turda is an old salt mine located deep underground in the town of Turda in Romania.
Salt was first extracted here during the antiquity and the mine continuously produced table salt from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century.
The extraction was stopped in 1932, after which the mines served various functions like bomb shelter during WWII and cheese storage.
In 1992, the mine was opened to the public and turned into a museum cum amusement park with bowling lanes, amphitheater, mini golf, a ferris wheel, spa and even an underground lake with boating facilities.
The elevators that were once used to transport salt now ferries people around.
Strategically installed lights accentuate the textured surface.
One of the most prominent features is a panoramic wheel that lets tourists see the stalagmites that have formed over the cave’s 1000-year history.

The museum actually includes three mines: the Terezia mine reaches the deepest at 120 meters followed by the Anton mine at 108 meters and the Rudolf mine at 42 meters, supported by various rooms and smaller chambers used during its operational days.
The rooms are massive in size and were excavated all by hand which makes their size even more impressive.
