Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator, born in 1947. Known for his precisely detailed, erotic hand painted portrayals of women and feminine robots.
Hajime Sorayama is known world-wide for his imaginative and highly accomplished paintings of beautiful women. Using brush, pencil and acrylic paint, airbrushing only finishing details, he creates memorable images in a hyper-realistic style. He is often referred to as the contemporary Vargas by those familiar with his pin-up style works, and is respected by artists and illustrators for his perfect technique.
In retrospect, Sorayama's work has been remarkably prescient. Beginning in the 1970s and evolving into the 21st century, the futuristic aura of the robotic, mythic and fantastical figures in his art have always been ahead of their time.
Much of Sorayama's work is produced with the whole image devoted to the model, very little background detail is given, and the final artwork leaves the eye to see the female form with little or no distractions.
