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.
After taking a trip to visit Shinique Smith’s installation Resonant Tides (2015) at Elk Camp in Snowmass, Workshop participants will have the chance to create their own mountain-inspired collaborative mural that will be presented at the Old Fashioned 4th of July Parade.
