PETER MAX IN CLAYTON
The return to Clayton is quite meaningful to Max, whose first St. Louis exhibition was held more than ten years ago.
Those who connected with him then or added his works to their private collections can view and obtain his latest work or look for a classic they may have previously let pass.
With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his vibrant colors and unmistakable, whimsical style 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 the young sensation Taylor Swift and legend in his own right, Steven Tyler.
The exhibit at Ober Anderson Gallery features a painted St. Louis Rams helmet and St. Louis Cardinals batting helmet.
Recently he had the honor of creating the design of the "T" Logo for the New York Times Sunday Magazine Section and has created hundreds of magazine covers including Time, Newsweek, and People Magazine.
