Hajime Sorayama ‘Sexy Robot’ Print

It's been a big week for aritst Hajime Sorayama, with the release of the KAWS No Future Companion figure and now check out this stunning print by him available at Colette. “The spotlight is on cult Japanese artist, Hajime Sorayama this limited edition print, exclusive to colette. In the late 1990’s, Sorayama was approached by the Sony Corporation to design an organic robotic form. It became the famous “AIBO” dog, now in the collection of the MOMA and then Smithsonian Institute of Technology. Intrigued by the effects of light on various metallic surfaces, and always ready for challenges to his technique and imagination, he began to produce a series of female robotic figures in the late 1970’s; anatomically correct in form, but appearing to have been fashioned of molten silver. The term “sexy robot” was coined to describe them.” These prints are 70 x 100 cm and cost €250 each.
