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.
Sarah Cain was born in 1979, in Albany, New York, and lives and works in Los Angeles. Her playful, abstract paintings and installations feature a bold use of color, improvisation, and a variety of perspectives. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, NC, and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Cain has created a large-scale installation at Elk Camp on Snowmass Mountain for the 2017–18 ski season, marking the twelfth consecutive year of the AAM’s Art in Unexpected Places.
