Max is both an artist in his own right and an art critic who has appeared in national, regional and local journals. He has roamed and written about American and European galleries and museums for as long as he can remember and lectured on modern art history. A graduate of the High School of Music and Art in New York, he is a professor emeritus at North Carolina State University where he created and taught courses linking modern art to modern literature. As a writer he was a newspaperman and editor and graduated from the City University of New York as a journalist, later taking his masters and doctorate in contemporary literature from Florida State University. For many years he has had studios in Artspace and elsewhere in Raleigh, where his approach is in a constant state of flux.
