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.
Danh Võ’s We The People is the artist’s long-term project reconstructing Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi’s Statue of Liberty on a 1:1 scale. Re-creating only the statue’s fragile copper skin—the thickness of two copper pennies—and using the same fabrication technique as the original, Võ explores the relationship between monumentality and materiality in We The People. By displaying the statue in pieces, the artist offers us the opportunity to relate to an iconic monument on a human scale and to reflect on the collective construction of the concept of liberty itself.
Original price: $10.00
