Gynoid/Skull Session I by Hajime Sorayama - click to enlarge

Ah, the ultimate nerd exhibition... nerdibition... hails from ze future!

2011 will be the year Hajime Sorayama finally gets his well-deserved retrospective looking back at an artistic career spanning over four decades.

There will be signature works from Sorayama's four main genres of artistic endeavour: Pin-ups, Myth & Fantasy, Robots & Gynoids, Erotic & Fetish.

Despite not being the biggest fan of the former two, I've been following and admiring Sorayama's contribution to the latter from a very early... probably too early... age and it is my great hope that this exhibition will become a travelling show for us robot deprived Europeans to get to see it too.
