Our Gallery: News from Diesel City

The world will never be the same.

Why?

The answer is simple: there’s a new book, just out of print, 200 pages capable of changing your world forever. You probably thought that Dieselpunk is about bizarre machinery, heroic aviators and cynical private detectives, movie divas and pretty flapper girls, Art Deco and Streamline Moderne aesthetics… But it’s much more than this.

Diesel City cover by Stefan

Stefan Prohaczka, the author, calls himself a “diesel powered artist”.  We believe it is an understatement: a man responsible for a score of Dieselpunk masterpieces should be called a pillar of the genre. Three years ago he joined the Diesel crowd and since then contributed a lot to various projects, from Dieselpunks Network to our Encyclopedia (see the emblem). After a salvo of pictorial series, covers and stand-alone posters here comes a ‘black box’ containing not only familiar images but also some information – finally deciphered.

Our Gallery: The Art of Alexey Lipatov

Dieselpunk Encyclopedia is proud to present one of our movement’s most famous creators: Alexey Lipatov. His contribution to the genre goes far beyond the images: this Ukrainian artist shows a wonderful ability to catch the spirit of dieselpunk and to present in a most precise and attractive way. No wonder that some of Lipatov’s works were turned into posters, wallpapers and avatars. It’s so easy to fall in love with this brave new world of flying boats and hovercrafts, smiling girls and adventurous pilots, with a light touch of noir and horror – just for fun.
We hope… no, we are sure you’ll enjoy this short selection.

Our Gallery: From a Parallel Universe

José García aka Cutangus is a former tank commander, Spanish Army. From early 2000s he’s building an alternative universe of his own – with hordes of scary vehicles, aircraft and, recently, mechanical soldiers. Here’s a quote from his Flickr profile:

Tired of the tyranny of the flesh, I became involved in secret experiments related to the translation of human conscience to bioelectric devices. The result is that I’m currently enclosed in Fugaco-class mechanical bodies, actually under development.

We are happy to present a selection of Cutangus’ artwork, in chronological order. Every image is linked to its Flickr page.
