I am horrified and appalled that this beautiful soul has been so cruelly imprisoned and abused by his keeper. Free Peter Max to spend the rest of his days with his family.

Met him once at a show in the Westchester Mall. He was sweet and humble. He even signed a NYPD PBA card for me.

I was Peter and his son Max's karate teacher in 1997. We were so close that Peter created a Universal Harmony Day Poster for my Universal Day event I produced. This event was to raise awareness against child abuse. I will stand for Peter as he did then with the power of his artwork.
