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.
Below the earth, Aspen’s rocks, minerals, soil, fossils, and crystals are waiting to be discovered! Daily observations and digs will provide the material for colorful charts, maps, and textiles that collectively tell a visual story of our local history. An installation of objects and artworks will be on display at the end of the session.
