Peter Max was born in 1937 in Germany. In 1938 he and his family fled the Nazis and moved to Shanghai, China where they lived for ten years before moving to Israel. In 1954 his family finally moved and settled in Brooklyn, New York.
Peter Max has been the official artist for; 1994 World Cup, the Grammy Awards, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Super Bowl. In 1976, he worked with Lee Iacocca of Chrysler to save the Statue of Liberty, creating a series that generated enough funding to restore the desperately worn landmark. He has developed new imagery, like Blushing Beauty, Zero Megalopolis, and The Umbrella Man which have become synonymous with America and American icons, especially the Statue of Liberty.
Today, Max has evolved from a visionary pop artist of the 1960s to a master of neo-expressionism. His vibrant and colorful works have become a lasting part of contemporary American culture.
