From superrealist airbrush paintings of erotic robots, to the original design of the first mass-market robot dog Sony AIBO, to collaborations with luxury fashion brands, Hajime Sorayama has been wowing his cult following and mainstream admirers for over five decades. This summer, HOW Art Museum is bringing the artist’s first big institution show to Shanghai with paintings, sculptures and installations spanning the 1970s to today – including some of his latest works that pay tribute to Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic film Metropolis.
