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.
Beasts of the Southern Wild tells the story of Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl who lives with her father, Wink, in “the Bathtub,” a Southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink’s tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe, for a time when he’s no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.
