POP ART LEGEND PETER MAX!





Peter Max is a multi-dimensional creative artist. He has worked with oils, acrylics, water colors, finger paints, dyes, pastels, charcoal, pen, multi-colored pencils, etchings, engravings, animation cells, lithographs, serigraphs, silk screens, ceramics, sculpture, collage, video and computer graphics. 



He loves all media, including mass media as a "canvas" for his creative expression.
As in his prolific creative output, Max is as passionate in his creative input. He loves to hear amazing facts about the universe and is as fascinated with numbers and mathematics as he is with visual phenomena.


"If I didn't choose art, I would have become an astronomer," states Max, who became fascinated with astronomy while living in Israel, following a ten-year upbringing in Shanghai, China. 
"I became fascinated with the vast distances in space as well as the vast world within the atom," says Max. Peter's early childhood impressions had a profound influence on his psyche, weaving the fabric that was to become the tapestry of his full creative expression.




The very first art work poster I bought with my babysitting money were of Peter Max's totally psychedelic images. Teh gorgeous colors and imaginative juxtapositioning of images blew everyone's minds. Us teenagers loved him right from the beginning. I wish I could afford an original....

Here is a very fun video with the charming Randy Newman sings the background theme.
