Peter Max Cosmic Jumper

“Untitled (Image = Cosmic Jumper)”

Untitled (Image = Cosmic Jumper)

Untitled (Image = Cosmic Jumper) is a fun piece that captures the free spirit of the 1960s. From the colors to the lines to the distinctive 1960s-style spacesuit of the cosmic jumper, this piece conveys a true sense of what it was like to be a part of the counterculture movement of the 1960s. The subject jumps freely throughout the cosmos, surrounded by stars, planets, and sunlight. You can’t help but smile when looking at this happy cosmic jumper! Giving this piece as a gift is a great way to brighten someone’s day.

Peter Max Sailboat with Heart

“Untitled (Image = Sailboat with Heart)”

Original artwork on paper – marker and crayon

8.5″ x 6.5″

Untitled (Image = Sailboat with Heart)

With simple marker and crayon, Peter Max manages to convey the plush, billowing sails of a sailboat that is sailing towards a heart-shaped sun. This optimistic image is wonderful for representing a bright outlook, a happy future, and fun adventures ahead. Again, Peter Max deftly captures the free spirit of 1960s counterculture. Both the cosmic jumper and the sailboat are in kinetic motion, caught in the moment of moving on towards something bright and new. Both works also capture not just the excitement of moving towards something new but also the fun to be had on the journey. Untitled (Image = Sailboat with Heart) is a wonderful small piece to add to your collection.
