EXPLORE a “perpetual futuristic story”
Best known for his hyper-real artwork, Sorayama has always had a clear vision of what the future would look like and made his mark on the art scene by portraying these ideas perfectly in his paintings.

âI want my work to be the inscription of a perpetual futuristic story. even if [if] the work I created is wiped out of this world, as long as the digital form survives, that’s fine, ‘ sorayama reviews.
