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.
Using contemporary paintings of plaids and patterns created by artist and designer Cheryl Donegan as our muse, we’ll cut, layer, and assemble a colorful medley of fabrics to make new artworks on canvas and a wearable item that expresses our individual tastes with a flair for the freeform. We’ll unveil our designs for family and friends at the end of the session.
These community workshops provide playful art exploration for young audiences with their parents or caregivers. The Levels 0–2 and 3–5 Years are offered free of charge on a first come, first serve basis.
