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.
This monthlong program for kids at the K–4 grade level is held weekly at the Aspen Art Museum. Taking place on December 3, 10, 17 from 2:30–4 p.m., these workshops recognize the value of exposing children to the arts at an early age and uses the artist’s process as an educational tool.
Commissioned by the Aspen Art Museum in collaboration with the artist and New York–based contemporary studio NAME GLO, this limited-edition Robert Montgomery light box takes inspiration directly from Montgomery’s 110-foot, large-scale work All Palaces are Temporary Palaces (2011), featured first in the 2011 edition of the Venice Biennale. Digitally printed on white Plexiglas and bottom-lit internally with white LED lights, this beautifully minimal, text-based artist edition will help brighten your environment, illuminate your perspective, and invite conversations in any space it occupies—just as intended by the artist himself.
Limited edition of 25.
