What could possibly be better than traveling in a dignified steam powered airship, surveying the prosperous land below through small paned windows, while wearing your finest victorian fashions? It’s hard to think of anything that would top such an experience, and Vadim Voitekhovitch’s steampunk oil paintings bring this fantastic alternate universe of the past to life with a realism that almost makes it tangible.

Voitekhovitch creates a world for us filled with 19th century people and painted in a weathered 19th century fashion. The place is absolutely packed with air traffic of a lighter-than-air kind, right alongside tumblehome warships, sleek submarines, steam powered busses and even walking transports. It’s a world full of discovery, prosperity and a whole lot of ingenuity. You can see more of this German based artist’s large collection of work at DeviantArt.
