ABOUT THE ART
This limited edition by Break Out is an homage to Fritz Lang and his Sci-Fi masterpiece, "Metropolis" where the character 'Maria' had her identity taken by a robot.
Nearly one-hundred years later, his urban dystopia has never been more real and it is with the hope that technological advancement goes hand-in-hand with the beauty and sexiness that we edited this robot sculpture under the title of 'Metropolis II'.
This work has been made keeping in memory the last sentence of the film:
"The Mediator Between the Head and the Hands Must Be the Heart".
Recognized world-wide for his uniquely imaginative, erotic style of paintings, Hajime Sorayama is a Vargas Award winner, an achievement of highest regard in air-brush artistry. The sleek chrome aesthetic of robotics in a hyper-sexualized feminine form has been a signature style for Sorayama that has spanned over 4 decades. Considered as one of the most influential pin-up artists of our time, Sorayama's art is displayed in permanent collections at the MOMA, Smithsonian Institute and the US Library of Congress.
