A WEBBY award-winning artist has paid tribute to the late Steve Irwin by way of a clever musical remix.

Electronic musician John Boswell's three-minute-and-15-second video of the Crocodile Hunter, titled Wildest Things in the World, has gone viral.

It's attracted more than 75,000 views in just over a week.

US resident Mr Boswell is the creator of the Symphony of Science music video series and other viral web videos, as well as a host of audiovisual projects.

His work has been featured on CNN, NPR, Wired, Adult Swim and more.

"My work focuses primarily on creating unique music videos from educational and pop culture content," the 28-year-old said.

"Steve Irwin fits the bill as both a pop culture icon and somebody who championed the cause of environmental conservation - a natural fit for my craft.

"With the Irwin piece, I am aiming to promote his message of extreme enthusiasm and passion for conserving wildlife and of sharing wonders of the animal kingdom with the world."

Mr Boswell's Symphony of Science series gained fame in 2009 and has since been put to use in classrooms around the world as a unique teaching tool.
