MYFOXNY.COM - Pop artist Peter Max is perhaps best known for his iconic 1960s artwork. He's out with a visual biography of his life titled 'The Universe of Peter Max.'

''I was always painting. I grew up in Shanghai. I've also lived in Tibet and Besonhurst. I lived for two years there. I went to high school there. On the first day of school a tall guy stands up next to me and does an aria thing and then apologized 'I don't mean to scare you.' It was Paul Sorvino. My buddy," recalled Max.

The artist's work was called psychedelic in the 1960s.

"What I am is an expressionist. I'm a painted. I love to draw," said Max.
