Peter Max is a multi-dimensional artist who became famous in the 1960s and early 70s for his pop artist (psychedelic) style and posters that converge to the mass media. Max gave the Art Nouveau style of the early 1900s a psychedelic makeover with a bright, acidic palette of hot pinks, yellows and greens. His bold colors and uplifting images have inspired others.
It doesn’t get more American than neo – psychedelic artist Lisa Frank. She could be the cousin to psychedelic artist Peter Max, except her art was made for young girls during the 1980′s and 1990′s. Lisa’s artwork consists of neon rainbows, tigers, unicorns, pandas, dolphins and surfing penguins. Lisa Frank creates a cute and freaky world with images that populated school desks nationwide as spiral notebooks, stickers, pencils and erasers. I’m convinced that Peter Max is a close relative of Lisa Frank
