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.

Hajime Sorayama is known world-wide for his imaginative and highly accomplished paintings of beautiful women and bio-robotics. Using brush, pencil and acrylic paint, airbrushing only finishing details, he creates memorable images in a hyper-realistic style. He is often referred to as the contemporary, imaginative Vargas by those familiar with his pin-up style works, and is respected by artists and illustrators for his perfect technique. Sorayama and Giger did a group showing with their arts adjacent in 2006 in New York City with representatives discussing potentials of a yet unrealized show in the future at Museum HR Giger. In that same year, AIBO was added into Carnegie Mellon University's "Robot Hall of Fame" with the description "the Sony AIBO represents the most sophisticated product ever offered in the consumer robot marketplace."
￭ 2 Sorayama books in planning to be announced; " XL-Masterworks " is one.
￭ Star Wars Art Concept book produced by George Lucas is published.
