Peeta 3D Graffiti


There’s no doubt that Peeta’s artwork is impressive for it’s technical quality. But the story behind the character and the symbolism of the work aren’t any less interesting. The process of the piece made in the Montana Gallery Barcelona for the exhibition, ‘Parallel Realities‘ (http://goo.gl/VRziAf), was documented for the video that we presented along the same lines, and for which we are thankful in better understanding the work of this Venitian graffiti artist from his perspective.

Sorayama – Sexy Robots

Guest Artist Series: Stussy x Sorayama from Stussy on Vimeo.

Just un-real.

Hajime Sorayama (1947-) graduated from Chubi Central Art School in Tokyo in 1969 and first spent some time working with an advertising company.

Since 1972 when he became freelance, he has been a legendary artist armed with astounding realistic metallicity techniques. His works of female images, robots and eroticism are well known both inside and outside of Japan. This reputation was initially established in 1978 with the work series entitled “Sexy Robot”, which shocked people throughout the world for his artful depictions of sensual metallic qualities and reflected light.

In 1999, he won both the Good Design Grand Prize from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the Media Arts Festival Grand Prize from the Agency from Cultural Affairs for his work with Sony on the concept design for their entertainment robot, AIBO.

In 2001, Sorayama received another prize for this invention from the Asahi newspaper. In this same year the 1st generation AIBO was added to the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institute and the Museum of Modern Art.

As if that weren’t enough, the internationally famous rock band Aerosmith collaborated with Sorayama on the artwork for the cover of their 2001 album, Just Push Play.

He also collaborated with Hollywood movies such as “Brain Dead” (1992), “Timecop” (1994) and “Space Trucker” (1995). His recent exhibition includes: AISHONANZUKA, Hong Kong (2013), Gering and Lopez Gallery, NY (2012), NANZUKA UNDERGROUND, Tokyo (2010), and Bape Gallery, Tokyo (2002).
