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.
Colorado Mineralogy is an aesthetic display of locally occurring minerals from Aspen and the state of Colorado that reference our diverse geological history. The ninety specimens represent sixty different minerals and range in appearance from peculiar to extraordinary. In contrast to the global perspective of Shigeru Ban’s humanitarian architecture, Colorado Mineralogy offers an intimate view of our region, where the historical mining of elements has been replaced by the mining of ideas.
