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.
Join us on Level 3 for a special reception to launch the book Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Aspen Snowmass. The publishers and local youth illustrators of the book will be available to sign copies and celebrate with a reception.
