The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
What can we learn from artists and their practices? How can art help us reimagine the world we live in? The AAM offers K–12 art teachers a free retreat to harness the transformational power of contemporary art for students. Sessions led in collaboration with Flavia Bastos, Director of Graduate Studies in Visual Arts Education at the University of Cincinnati.
