Artist Peter Max at Angela King Gallery: Steven Forster's Big Easy
Pop artist Peter Max kicked off his “Masters Series” at Angela King Galleryon Royal Street on March 9, 2013. Max, America’s preeminent Pop artist, returns to New Orleans with an impressive collection that pays homage to master painters.
Through this extraordinary new “Masters Series,” Max exhibits interpretive works of Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Pablo Picasso, Renoir and Edgar Degas, conceived in the artist’s signature styles and colors. These works showcase both a maturation of the Max’s illustrious career, as well as his formal training at the legendary Art Students League of New York.
Peter Max is no stranger to New Orleans. In 2005, Max created a poster to benefit funds for Hurricane Katrina. “I just felt I had to do my part for it,” Max said. “I'm always lucky as an artist to do something official. It's nice to do that because 80 percent of my time is spent in solitude – composing, painting, making pictures – without any interruption from the outside world.”
Max’s paintings have been on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, making his vibrant colors a legendary part of contemporary culture. The artist has had the distinct honor of painting the last seven Presidents of the United States, along with many of the world’s adored celebrities. His works are on view now at the Angela King Gallery at 241 Royal Street. Admission to the exhibition is free.
