We are pleased to showcase the work of Peter Max Lawrence as the new banner artist for our site. This is the first time we’ve had sketch art as a banner and frankly, we think it’s pretty good. Peter lives and works in San Francisco and is preparing for a major collaborative exhibition “AT WAR” with Troung Tran at SOMArts February 3rd, 6pm – 9pm.

Peter Max Lawrence is a maker of things. Born in Topeka; adopted soon there after and raised in Kansas City, Kansas. Over the course of his life, he has created a large and diverse body of work, exploring a wide variety of approaches, media and themes. Lawrence’s visual art, performances and videos have been presented internationally in venues ranging from basement bathrooms to major museums. Among his recent works of note are QUEER in KANSAS, Warholics and the experimental short de Young which was created while working as an artist-in-residence at the museum and later was featured on KQED’s Truly California. He has also directed music videos for Carletta Sue Kay, Krystle Warren and troops. Currently he is the curator for The One and Art Thieves as well as developing various collaborations with other musicians, artists and writers.
