Los Angeles, CA
Art type:

Max Neutra is a painter from Venice Beach, CA. With influences like Ralf Steadman, Gerald Scarfe, and Egon Schiele, he developed a loose and expressive style. After spending five years painting live on the streets, in galleries, bars, clubs, and festivals in Los Angeles, Max Neutra made a name for himself as one of the city’s premier contemporary artists.  He has been commissioned by Toyota, Warner Brothers Records, and has risen to the international arena through sponsored tours across Europe and India. Being a self taught artist has allowed Max to develop a style that is distinctly recognizable as his own.  Riding the line between mayhem and control, he paints images that are both chaotic and contained, each canvas an arena where chance and skill come together to create a colorful fusion of iconic imagery.  Utilizing his distinctive gonzo style, he explores subjects such as the dark side of humanity, the beauty in nature, the fading line between man and machine, and brutal truths we often avoid, all while matching his subjects with the expressive vitality they deserve.
