In February, Japan’s NANZUKA gallery announced it would be showcasing artist Hajime Sorayama‘s “Sex Matter” exhibition at its main gallery, which explores themes around robots and sex displayed through 10 different paintings and life-sized sculptures.
To commemorate the event, Sorayama has teamed up with streetwear brand XLARGE to release a limited collection highlighting his works from the exhibition. The collection consists of black and white pocket tees featuring large graphics of his signature sexy robot and a Trex, with collaborative metallic branding on the front and back. The tees also introduce a heroic female ninja wearing a metallic chain armor and a reinterpretation of Joan of Arc. Additionally, the capsule includes two rayon button-ups–one which presents an all-over print with variations of Sorayama’s leg illustrations, and the other displaying an erotic collage inspired by Japanese Edo and Meiji cult culture.
The “Sex Matter” merch collection is available to purchase at the exhibition and pre-order at XLARGE online and in-stores.
Take a closer look at Sorayama’s solo exhibitions for “Sex Matter” and “Trex” on view now until April 12.
