Occasionally I stumble upon airbrush art at garage sales or at op shops, usually they are faded and worn or mouldy from being neglected in someones basement.  But these images once were the pride of place in teenage rooms everywhere.

Syd Brack is probably one of the most recognised artists in this genre from the 80s, with his images being quite iconic. They were heavily influenced by punk and new wave fashions of the late 70s and early 80s. Images were published by the Athena publishing group including on postcards and posters. He also did airbrush illustration for advertisements for companies using his iconic style.

Hajime Sorayama was an artist who focused mainly on adult content and robot women were featured heavily.

There is also other little known or even unknown airbrush artists from this period as it was the trend at the time and as time goes on this artwork I am sure will become even more collectable.
