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.
Calling all creative kids! Abandon the flat canvas in this mixed media Workshop where colors, patterns, and combined materials provide the structure for new forms of art. Inspired by the work of artist Alan Shields, participants will take painting to the next dimension by designing their own colorful canvases from hand-made paper and suspended forms.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 am–6 pm
