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.

The Silhouette is a set in which the animals of the Animal Box are resized and moved to the vastness of the jungle horizon through cork profiles that represent the contour of the landscape. The profiles have modular dimensions that allow various compositions, such as a long horizon, a compact area, or many other regular or random shapes creating a wildlife habitat to be explored by the animals. Like the Animal Box, the Silhouette represents the animal world through its stylized shapes that combined with the use of natural materials and their expressive qualities provide strong visual stimuli.
