Timothy Aymar

"I'm an artist who has great respect for Peter Max. But even if he wasn't a brilliant artist, he deserves far better than isolation (and being robbed of his dignity) at the hands of unfeeling shysters. He and his family deserve better. If he didn't have so much wealth and fame, the people in power over him would have discarded him. Shameful."

"As a fan of Britney Spears and being part of the movement that got out her out of her conservatorship, I couldn't help be moved by Peter Max's daughter speaking about at the rally for what they did to her father. It has opened my eyes to a subject and injustice that I was not aware of and I hope with Britney freed people like Peter and Micelle plus other Americans in abusive guardianships can seem their freedom."

I've run into Peter several times on the street, it takes him a few minutes to realize who I am, then he points and waves at me to come over, when I do, it's like his memory rushes in and he remembers many things. He is scared, confused, and needs help. To remove his beloved cats that brought him comfort is cruel. Peter will be freed, just like Britney Spears. End this unconstitutional guardianship now.

"I met Peter 35 years ago at a gallery that was being readied for a show that night in San Diego CA. He was very gracious and even though he was busy with an preparations and a tv interview, he made the time to talk to me for a while. Ever since that first meeting, everytime he saw me he always remembered my name and always came over to talk to me. A few years later he enquired as to why I was in a wheelchair so I explained that I was born with spina bifida and what had gone on through the years. One day I got a call from Peter asking if I could get my medical records from the time I was born so he could show them to some doctors he knew. I never ever forgot that offer to help me from this special human being."

"All too often the legal community's meddling in lives and families under the pretense of helping is motivated by greed and power and victimizes causing grievous harm to the very persons they claim to be helping."

"This guardianship is not protecting Peter’s well being, rather giving him and end of life sentence of solitary confinement. Any court that would allow this injustice does not know the meaning of compassion."

"Peter Max was an inspiration for me when I was in art school in the 70s. He beautifully captured the times and cultural during that time period. He brought so many people such joy through his life through his art. He deserves to be happy, secure amongst others that love him."
