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.
Texts by Heidi Zuckerman, Richard Tuttle, Agnes Martin, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Fischli & Weiss, Dave McKenzie, & Yoko Ono.
