I am now the proud owner of a PETER MAX
Well today I met "the man" and bought a piece of his art. I even asked if I could hug him he said sure,and we hugged. The package was an authentic piece of acrylic painted art on paper,8X10 in size in a amazing frame,which he signed to me on the back and doodled more art. I also got my photo with him by his photographer,which was kewl and will be mailed to me. I also was given his new book (you gotta see it) signed inside to me again,and more artsy doodles by him. The dear man is now 70,and his show was fabulous, but I couldn't swing the 20-75 grand range. I am beyond thrilled to own a PETER MAX! The gradiated colors of orange on the piece are fab as well as the heart. The hearts were done after the Berlin Wall came down,he was born in Berlin. People were there with old posters etc for him to sign. I got front of the line since I bought a piece there. One man I chatted with had one of thirteen pieces he bought in the 70's. It was impressive. It was like a rock concert with all the music and him bopping,and us enthralled.
A piece I loved was a cow,in his style...story behind it is,the cow was headed to the slaughter house and she ran and jumped the fence,so Peter Max got her and took her to his place to live! Can you not love this man?
