With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his vibrant colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Max has been successively called a Pop Icon, Neo Fauvist, Abstract Expressionist, and the United States “Painter Laureate.” These works speak to both a maturation of the artist’s illustrious career, as well as to his formidable training at the 135-year-old Art Students League of New York and the cutting-edge School of Visual Arts in New York City.
The artist has had the distinct honor of painting the last seven Presidents of the United States and the world’s best-loved celebrities, among them the young sensation Taylor Swift and the amazing talents of “The Voice.”
The Tampa presentation features and premiers the signed vintage posters, Max’s iconic and best-known pieces as well, among them the Woodstock Commemorative, “Statue of Liberty,” Max’s famous “Flag” pieces, “Umbrella Man” and the prestigious “Cosmic Runner.”
