For 25 years, art director and modern artist Peter Szucsy has filled his days with rendering the bizarre, sinister beasts that run rampant through video games. With this particular taste, Szucsy created some modern art pieces that truly do the wonder of whoever lays eyes on it. A complete metamorphosis where regular metal old devices morph into beautiful small sculptures.
“So I left my computer and made lots of my ideas to come alive in the real world.”
The result is a curious menagerie of modern art steampunk spiders that the Budapest-based artist assembles with parts of vintage watches, cameras, and medical equipment.
“I have made many creatures, monsters in the virtual world… but a few years ago I felt it is about time to create something different,” he says of his time working in the industry.
Each week, for his contemporary art, Szucsy scours a flea market near his home to find materials that include rare, pricey timepieces, although the artist notes he avoids dismantling anything that a museum or institution would value. In his modern art studio, he parses the found metals and meticulously crafts the articulate eight-legged creatures.
