Zulu Red Ver. III #2

Acrylic on Canvas

48" x 60"

This stunning work is a dramatic exemplar of Peter Max's energetic, expressionistic painting style that emerged in the early 1980s. The artist's lively brushwork depicts two figures, painted in black, whose hearts are most prominent. Along with their hearts, their faces and forms are highlighted with electric color against their dark forms set against a brilliant red - the bold, rousing red of traditional garments worn in Zulu coming-of-age ceremonies. 

Max's use of negative and positive space and his provocative color palette make 'Zulu Red' a riveting and unforgettable painting.
