About Peter Max

Renowned for his vibrant and iconic artistic language, Peter Max stands as a prominent figure on the global art stage, transcending the traditional role of a painter. His vivid and kaleidoscopic palette, reminiscent of the psychedelic era of the 60s, has evolved into a symbol of boundless optimism, leaving an enduring imprint throughout his prolific career.

Peter Max's artistic expertise spans a multitude of mediums, encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, print, and graphic design. While often categorized as a neo-expressionist, Max's true distinction lies in being one of the most prolific and commercially successful pop artists in history. His impact goes beyond the canvas, with notable collaborations ranging from designing for General Electric to serving as the official artist for prestigious events like the Grammy Awards and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Max's artistic influence extends to major sporting events, including the Super Bowl, World Cup, World Series, and the US Open. Notably, his creations have adorned a Continental Airlines Boeing 777 and even found a place on a US postage stamp.

Max's synesthetic art, characterized by its eclectic and figurative nature, serves as a testament to his kaleidoscopic vision. From the iconic Lady Liberty series and music-inspired imagery to the contemporary Obama series and the Masters Series reinterpreting art history classics, Max has rightfully earned the status of a genuine American cultural icon. His works, commissioned by six American presidents, are housed in over 100 museums and galleries worldwide.

Born as Peter Max Finkelstein in 1937 in Berlin, Max's nomadic upbringing in China, Israel, and France culminated in his family's settlement in the United States. Presently, he resides in the vibrant artistic landscape of New York City, NY, where he continues to shape the art world with his groundbreaking creations. The narrative of Peter Max goes beyond a conventional artistic journey; it stands as a testament to the enduring impact of a visionary whose creations transcend temporal and cultural boundaries.
