For more than 25 years, Peter Szucsy, Hungarian illustrator and designer, dedicated his career to creating sinister beasts for video games. As a highly-skilled art director and artist, he created several bizarre monsters that run rampant through the virtual world of video games. When he felt it was time to try something different, he came up with the amazing steampunk spider sculptures.
Crafted from different parts of vintage watches, medical equipment, and cameras, the Steampunk Spider Sculpture remains an amazing piece of artwork. Rather than working with vector graphics and pixels, Szucsy made this masterpiece a reality by making use of various pieces gotten from antique watches as well as other vintage objects.

While trying to fabricate the intricate steampunk spider sculptures, Szucsy would visit a flea market near his home in search of antiques and material, including rare, expensive, vintage timepieces. However, he made sure he didn’t have to dismantle any time that will be valued by an institution or museum.
In an interview with Peter Szucsy, he said, “I have been working as a video game artist and art director for many years. I made many monsters and creatures in the virtual world. But a few years ago, I felt it was about time that I created something different and unique. I’ve been planning to make such a spider in the real world, and now, it has come true.”

This masterpiece from Peter Szucsy only continues his love for creative artwork both in the virtual and real world. Even though it wasn’t easy collecting every necessary part required to craft the intricate creatures, to match in material, style, and color. However, Szucsy was determined to make this a reality.
Hanging this amazing steampunk spider sculpture on the wall offers a unique view of a spider climbing the wall and about to get its prey. Absolutely fantastic. As time goes by, we should expect more fine steampunk sculptures from Peter Szucsy. As someone who now enjoys handmade creations, we can expect him to surpass our expectations with his next vintage piece.
