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.
AAM Artist Fellowship
The Aspen Art Museum is launching an Artist Fellowship, aimed at providing professional development opportunities for artists working within a hundred-mile radius of the museum. This nine-month program offers mentorship through AAM Staff, opportunities to build relationships with visiting artists and curators, and strengthens ties with the local community. Recipients receive a $1000 honorarium.
Are you looking for an intimate, constructive environment to gain new perspectives on your artwork? Adopting art school’s format of group feedback, this program provides a selected group of local artists with valuable insight from a visiting expert.
