On April 22nd the world will celebrate Earth Day. The iconic Artist is an environmentalist of the highest order and has honored Earth Day and its celebrations throughout his career
Since the late 1960s, artist Peter Max has promoted environmental awareness through his creative and colorful artwork. In 1974, he was commissioned by the U.S. Postal Service to create the first 10¢ U.S. postal stamp- to commemorate Expo ’74 in Spokane, Washington. It was also the first U.S. stamp with the designation, “Preserve the Environment.”
In 1992, Max was commissioned to create a series of twelve international postage stamps (three sets of four) for the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a result of their success, he was again commissioned to create two additional stamp series for the Earth Summits in Kyoto, Japan, and Johannesburg, South Africa.
Max has created several posters to commemorate Earth Day, including Earth Day 25th anniversary, as well as posters for The Rainforest Foundation, and numerous other green organizations.
“Nature itself is the most beautiful and creative work of art and we should do all that we can to preserve it for ourselves and future generations,” says Max.
Max also loves the quote, “You can trust a universe that creates flowers.” He adds, “We should also be able to trust the people that our universe also created to help preserve that creation.”
