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.
Used as a way to help visitors to slow down and look closely at selected exhibitions, Exhibition Activity Guides embody the practice of the artists whose work is on view and provide an interactive resource to experience art.
