Dieselpunk is the recently-coined name for a sub-genre that has existed for decades. Named for the engine that gave us the modern automobile, airplane, navy and war vehicle, diesel-punk represents the aesthetic of the two World Wars, the interbellum period and the immediate post-war period. Diesel-punk combines the artistic and literary influences of the early 20th century (including pulp magazines, Art Deco, serial films, film noir, radio dramas, wartime pin-ups and contemporary art) with postmodern technology and sensibilities. Where steam-punk ends, diesel-punk begins !!!!
According to artist Stefan Paris...diesel-punk refers to a branch of the pop-surrealist (aka “low brow”) artistic movement popularized in the early 2000s. Diesel-punk style combines the aesthetics of the Interbellum period with modern technology and sensibilities. Coined in 2001 by Lewis Pollack to describe his role-playing game Children of the Sun, the term now refers to a distinctive style of graphic art, music, film, fashion, literature, and even architecture. The self-derisive motto of the genre is, "Dieselpunk, because Steampunk wasn't dirty enough.

You can imagine to my great surprise when I discovered Diesel-punk and it ties to one Of my favorite style [some fans Of film-noir refer to it as a Genre ] Of film-making called Film Noir...Wiki's definition...
The term film noir, French for "black film", first applied to Hollywood films by French critic Nino Frank in 1946, was unknown to most American film industry professionals of the classic era. Cinema historians and critics defined the noir canon in retrospect. Before the notion was widely adopted in the 1970s, many of the classic film noirs were referred to as melodramas.[a] The question of whether film noir qualifies as a distinct genre is a matter of ongoing debate among scholars.
[On a personal note: My interest in film noir is collecting the memorabilia and the films [themselves] are just the "catalyst" that set the ball in motion.]
Diesel-punk is a sub-genre of the pop surrealist art movement and a budding sub-culture that combines the aesthetics of the interbellum period through World War II, and ending before or at the early 1950s, with postmodern technology and sensibilities. According to the article “Discovering Dieselpunk” the word “Dieselpunk” was coined in 2001 as a marketing term by game designer Lewis Pollak to describe his role-playing game Children of the Sun, dieselpunk has grown to describe a distinct style of visual art, music, motion pictures, fiction, and engineering.
