The artist has had the distinct honor of being named the Official Artist of the Grammys, Super Bowl, World Cup Soccer
and the Official Artist of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. An ardent Environmentalist, Peter Max has been at the forefront of
Environmental Preservation efforts for over five decades.
The First Environmental U.S. Postage Stamp
As Max’s poster art is associated with the spirit of ecology, the U.S. Postal Service commissions the artist to create the first ten-cent postage stamp commemorating Expo ’74 World’s Fair in Spokane, Washington. Max uses the line, “Preserve the Environment.”
“Throughout the years, I have painted so many beautiful, beautiful, imaginative musicians: Mick Jagger, Sting, The Beatles, David Bowie, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Pharrell Williams, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Jon Bon Jovi, Yes, Phil Collins, Gwen Stefani, Steven Tyler, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and so many others. It’s mind-blowing when I think about it. I love great music and the amazingly talented people that make it.” Peter Max
“I really love my hand-painted Fender Telecaster guitars in this exhibition. I’ve painted some of my most iconic images on them: my Angel with Heart, Lady Liberty, my hearts, and a homage to da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. They’re colorful and unique. Guitar players and collectors tell me how much they love them”. Peter Max
Max’s “Be In” Love poster inspires several hundred thousand hippies to gather in New York City’s Central Park and immortalize the Summer of Love.
