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.
A magic touch is needed to transform familiar objects into extraordinary artworks! We’ll use what we find in the studio as inspiration for new drawings, paintings, and three-dimensional works that come to life through our unique perspectives and creative stories.
July 22–26, 9 AM–3 PM
Shapes, colors, and collages—oh my! Let’s create together in this 2-D workshop through the use of colors, scribbling, and dripping. Based on the work of Etel Adnan, we will use the artist’s process to create colorful landscapes!
