Max Gottfried is a painter who lives in Long Beach, NY. During the day he is a mild mannered professor and educator at Nassau Community College and the Sally Feng Studio (Voted #1 art school -2021). His paintings, prints and 3D constructions are the inspired result from a collective steady diet of comic books, film noir, 1930s streamline design, 1960s surf/reverb music, vintage textiles and the complexities of male/female relationships. His explosive colors and patterns are from a lifelong history of migraine headaches and intense cranial suffering.
