HAJIME SORAYAMA Biography

Hajime Sorayama is world famous for an intense hyper illustrated style. Sorayama is sometimes described as an imaginative modern day Vargas. The conceptual originality and futuristic visions of Sorayama transcend the erotic form and maintains a growing number of main stream admirers. He paints with a tiny brush and airbrushes finishing aspects. Sorayama creates super realistic female pin ups, metallic robots and erotic art. The highly detailed art is featured in movies, TV, books, magazines and ads.
