Sexy Silver metallic robot Kneeling - Hajime Sorayama - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"
Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator known for his precisely detailed, erotic portrayals of feminized, biomechanoid robots, and his design work on the original Sony AIBO robotic "pet".
He describes his highly detailed style as "superrealism", which he says "deals with the technical issue of how close one can get to one's object."
Hajime received his basic education at Imabari Kita High School, it was here he started drawing Playboy inspired pin-ups.
Sorayama is known for his fine art, illustration, and industrial design. Of the distinction between the first two, Soryama commented in an interview: "Unlike art, illustration is not a matter of emotion or hatreds, but an experience that comes naturally through logical thinking."
Sorayama's art book Sexy Robot, published by Genko-sha in 1983, made his organic–robotic forms famous around the world. For the work, he used ideas from pin-up art, which in the book then appear as chrome-plated gynoids in suggestive poses.
