About the Art
This is an original acrylic painting on paper by the highly collectible artist Peter Max. Known for his use of loose brushstrokes and bright colors, Max’s work captures the spirit of the 1960s and ’70s through psychedelic and counter culture themes. He has a tendency to use the entire color spectrum in his works which adds to the psychedelic 60’s feel. In this piece a woman’s face is surrounded by a bright blue circle resembling the Earth. The contrast between her, the blue, and the warmer background is absolutely brilliant and really balances the piece despite all the color. Max adds a lot of spiritual and cosmic elements to his pieces while also utilizing his skill to support environmentalism and patriotism. This piece shows that love for the Earth while the woman’s hair almost resembles a meteor, maybe alluding to the stress to take care of our Earth and enjoy every moment you have.
