Retro Day: The trippy world of peter max

Even if you have never heard of Peter Max, I am sure you have seen his work. His iconic style is the image of the 60s, and his cosmic designs covered just about everything you could imagine during the Age of Aquarius – from posters and paintings, to clothing and stamps – and for that reason he made the cover of Life Magazine in 1969.

Since then the legacy of Peter Max has only continued to grow.  He has painted for 6 U.S. Presidents and his art is on display in Presidential Libraries and U.S. Embassies.  Max has been named an official artist of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Team at the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. He has also been Official Artist of 5 Super Bowls, World Cup USA, The World Series, The U.S. Open, The Indy 500, The NYC Marathon and The Kentucky Derby.  The list of accomplishments goes on and on, and will only continue to grow as the artist is still alive and working away to this day.
