9783037666289: Vibrant Vixens

Mostly unseen work from the illustrator known for his sexy robots Sorayama's new book contains highly explicit art and is definitely suitable for adults only. His erotic, futuristic, hyperrealistic illustrations create a visual landscape that would be impossible to achieve in photography alone. Only the masterful Sorayama, equipped with boundless imagination, is able to achieve this, using pencil and brush, acrylic paint, and airbrush. The works collected here are simultaneously breathtaking and at times repulsive, yet all of them are utterly fascinating. Very few of these images have been published before, but the time has come for Sorayama to release this secret work. These images are really not for the squeamish; readers have been warned!

About the Artist: Hajime Sorayama was born in 1947 in Imabari, Ehime prefecture, Japan. He received his basic education at Imabari Kita High School. In 1965 he was admitted to the Shikoku Gakuin University, where he began to study Greek and English literature In 1967, after the publication of his first work, Pink Journal, he transferred to Tokyo's Chuo Art School where he began to study art. Sorayama graduated in 1968 at the age of 21, and gained an appointment in an advertising agency. He became a freelance illustrator in 1972. In 1978 he drew his first robot and that started his career as a unique artist lauded by his peers fans and collectors. In retrospect, Sorayama's work has been remarkably prescient. Beginning in the 1970's 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 in many cases predictive of future reality.
