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." 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 music sensation Taylor Swift, who was first exposed to Max during her summer visits to Stone Harbor and Ocean Galleries.
One of the highlights of this year’s carefully curated exhibition will be his latest series of paintings in honor of the Frank Sinatra Centennial Celebration. The exhibit also features his iconic and best-known pieces, including Statue of Liberty, his famous Flag pieces, Umbrella Man and the prestigious Cosmic Runner. In addition, the exhibit features many of his revered celebrity portraits and numerous shore-themed paintings created specifically for the Ocean Galleries event.
