Today we had the honor of meeting the one and only Peter Max at his studio located in New York city. What an insightful meeting! Peter Max is an incredible artist, painter, pop icon named "Painter Laureate". Luckily for us, we arrived at his studio right when he was feeling creative as he was painting...yes we saw the Peter paint LIVE!
One word: speechless!
When saked about his inspirations, Peter Max used to say his friends inspire him greatly. Today, Peter lets "ART HAPPEN TO HIM..." He just goes with the flow. And the flows drives him to make magic!
Peter Max is one of the most public and accessible artists of our era. His appeal, like those of the most enduring icons, such as George Gershwin, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney and Bob Bob Dylan, spans all national demographics and has done so for several generations. His exhibitions have had record-smashing attendance at such venues as the de Young Museum, the Hermitage Museum, and the Moscow Academy of Art. Peter did more than 50 one-man museum exhibitions, 1000 magazine covers and he still does over 50 radio shows every month!
Regardless of the subject, the art of Peter Max continues to convey the vision of a bright, creative, and substainable planet. His art is positive, loving and joyful.
Max has painted many famous personalities in music, sports and entertainment such as Taylor Swift, Steven Tyler, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Shaquille O'neal, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Bono, Martin Luther King, jr, The Dalai Lama as well as the last 6 presidents including Clinton & Obama.
Peter Max is just not an artist, he's an Icon" Larry King.
