Max Kauffman

Art Collaborations

Max’s work evokes a post apocalyptic DIY culture where structures and life itself are cobbled together out of anything at hand. It’s making the most out of what you have and what’s around you. Showing that our struggles, fears, victories and dreams haven’t changed much since the dawn of humanity. Portraying power and the ways it changes hands – among individuals, imparted to objects, and released from self. Organizing the chaos that forms our day-to-day lives into something that makes sense. Making the world smaller by emphasizing the interconnectedness of everything. Max draws influence from everyday life, from the biological world past and present, and from the process of evolution. Artistically, indigenous art across South America, music of many forms, and the makings of modern folk purveyors get Max inspired.
