As a child, I was fascinated by the pulsing colors and spectra of works by Peter Max. Born in 1937, Max created colorful illustrations throughout his entire life across all media, and in partnership with many large companies, such as the USPS and 7-Up, which made him a cultural phenomenon. He is most notable for his psychedelic landscapes with jubilant figures that seem to characterize the "Cosmic Sixties". Max still lives and works in New York City, and his work remains a source of inspiration for me, both in the color palettes and compositions which recall one of my favorite decades in fashion and in art.
