Early in his life, Max fell in love with three things: comic books, movies, and jazzall uniquely American. In China, Maxs lessons were taught in English, so when he saw his first American movie at the cinema and picked up his first comic book, he was thrilled to understand them. In 1948, Max and his family traveled through Tibet, which had a profound effect on Maxs artistic development and spiritual growth. A German scientist and astronomer staying in the same hotel as Maxs family also had a lasting impact on Max, introducing him to cosmology. The influence of comic books, with their foreshortening of lines, bold colors, and heavy black outlines, stayed with Max throughout his career. This formed the foundation of Maxs style alongside his love for color, spirituality, and music.
Peter Maxs fascination with cosmology expanded when he began reading the encyclopedia, beginning with the letter A. He got no further than astronomy. He was so enamored by the subject that he began to take evening classes at Technion, a scientific university in Haifa. Later in life, this quest for cosmic knowledge would become spiritual as much as scientific.
Before immigrating to the United States, the Max family traveled to Paris for six months in 1953 where Max spent time studying at the Louvre. At the Louvre, Max became intrigued by the photorealistic works of 19th-century artist Adolphe-William Bouguereau, inspiring him to take up the style.
His family eventually settled in Brooklyn, where Max graduated high school and studied under the realist Frank J. Reilly at the Art Students League in 1956. He learned drafting and anatomy from Reilly, finely honing the photorealism he admired of Bouguereau. Max spent nearly all his time at the Art Students League, taking every class possible for the next five years. Max discovered, however, that photorealism limited his imagination. He created his last realistic painting in 1959. In 1961, fresh out of school, Max established a graphic design studio with friends. They found almost overnight success in the design industry. Around this time Max began experimenting with a more abstract and colorful style. He expressed this new, psychedelic style through posters, advertising, and graphic works. The look he achieved was sought-after by companies across the country. Agencies, magazines, and national publications sought out Maxs style for a wide variety of projects and commissions.
The story behind his poster for the Central Park Be In on Easter of 1967 was adapted for the Academy Award-winning director Milos Formans film, Hair. Max found himself at the center of a cultural revolution, magnified by his unique graphic style. As an iconic artist and designer, his posters could be found on the walls of college dorm rooms around the country.
For most of the 1970s, Max shut down his graphic workshop. He took himself off the radar for almost 18 years to spend time with his family and concentrate on his new passionpainting. He enjoyed the freedom that came from working with canvases and brushes instead of printing presses.
Park West Gallery has enjoyed a relationship with Max since the 1970s and is the artists largest and longest-running dealer in the world. Although Max retreated from the spotlight during this time, he continued to evolve his artistic style, and was the subject of the exhibition The World of Peter Max at the de Young Museum in 1971.
Showing patriotism and a love for his adopted country, Max created six poster images in response to the September 11th attacks. Proceeds from the series were donated to the September 11 and Twin Towers Relief Funds. In October 2002, Max created 356 portrait paintings of the firefighters and first responders who perished that day. Each painting was presented to the surviving families of the firefighters during a ceremony at Madison Square Garden. Alongside his patriotism, Max is a passionate environmentalist and defender of human and animal rights, using his talents to support these causes.
Maxs signature style is characterized by uplifting cosmic and patriotic themes carefully painted with brilliant hues and loose brushstrokes. Max adapted his techniques from graphic works to painting, with his palette becoming softer and more diverse and his strokes broader and more textured. While studying at the Louvre, Max found inspiration in the nearly photo-realistic paintings of Adolphe-William Bouguereau, motivating Max to focus on draftsmanship. Despite mastering photorealism, Max felt stifled by the style and pursued a different direction which embraced abstraction, broad color fields, and other styles in vogue during the 1960s. In doing so, Max allowed his creative spirit to blossom. This was his initial step toward Neo-Fauvism and Neo-Expressionism. Throughout the 60s, Max developed his signature cosmic style. He blended his fascinations with Eastern philosophy, astronomy, studies in color, and music with vivid bursts of color to create a truly unique style.
Maxs artistic talents span multiple mediums, including painting, drawing, etching, lithography, serigraphy, collage, and sculpture.
As his artwork evolved, Max developed other imagery like the Dega Man, Zero Megalopolis, and The Umbrella Man. Other iconic imagery appearing throughout Maxs oeuvre includes his profiles of women, such as Blushing Beauty. These portraits are inspired by the women in his life.
