Peter Max & John Lennon
Peter Max, artist famous for his bold colors and identified with the visual arts and culture of the 1960s, especially psychedelic and pop art. He was fascinated with the dazzling creativity of The Beatles during that period, along with colorful ads for magazines and TV commercials. In the 1970s, the New York Times called him the master of the “DayGlo posters for the turn on, tune in, drop out generation.” He was allowed to sketch the Statue of Liberty and joined in the sincere effort to restore her, leading to involvement in environmental issues and human and animal rights. Colorful was not just how he painted, but was indeed him. Here is an original hand drawn and signed sketch of John Lennon ala Yellow Submarine by Peter Max.
