Sorayama Does Marilyn Monroe

Hajime Sorayama's airbrush work will transport you right back to the 1980s. But for this exhibit titled “An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine.” he melds 1980s aesthetics with 1950s pop culture by reinterpreting famous photos of Marilyn Monroe as his famous Sexy Robot character. The Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo is hosting this solo exhibition, featuring both paintings and sculptures. Seeing Monroe through Sorayama's lens is both uncanny and stunning, and with each piece it's hard to get the titular quote out of your head. Check out the gallery to get your mind blown and click the source link for more photos.

    Parra is one of my favorite artists, but I've never gotten the chance to see his work in person (other than Kidrobot's Pierced, that is).

    You've seen Cleon Peterson's Balance of Power before, but not like this. Case Studyo have collaborated with the artist to create a 3D version of the painting rendered in glossy, white porcelain.

    I don't think I need to explain why Coarse Toys have garnered a cult following. And the German duo's illustrations are just as alluring as their toys.
