Peter's New York State of Mind by k Madison Moore Interior Inspired by Peter Max

Peter's New York State of Mind

Inspired by Peter Max


Painting with The Masters

11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas


I am always so fascinated with Peter Max
 and his accomplishments. 
In searching for inspiration from some I found this 
ship that he was commissioned to design the art 
for it's hull.
Amazing! He has designed for cars and pianos
among many others. These are some huge canvas'
for sure!

I decided that I wanted to use the "original" New York
skyline as an honer to 911. This ship will now be
a New York icon so what better than to have the 
orignal skyline as it will forever be an icon as well!

This is definitely an interior with a different view!
I could see Peter sitting here among his art looking
on at this huge accomplishment with a toast in hand.
He must be so proud!

MIAMI – September 4, 2012 – Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Breakaway’s signature hull artwork designed by pop icon and America’s most popular living artist, Peter Max. This is the first time Norwegian has commissioned a well-known artist to paint the hull artwork on one of its ships. Launching in April 2013, Norwegian Breakaway will be the largest ship to homeport in New York City year-round.  Max’s signature artwork will cover approximately 40,000 square feet of Norwegian Breakaway’s hull.

“While it has been an honor to have my art exhibited in museums and galleries, I have also enjoyed creating giant ‘canvases’ for public view, including my 600 ft. Woodstock stage, a giant World’s Fair mural, the body of a Continental 777 super jet, and now, the hull of Norwegian Breakaway,” said Peter Max from his New
York studio. “The artwork is a composite of New York City and cosmic imagery— the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline, a giant sunburst, planets, stars, and musical notes. That’s my New York! And now Norwegian Breakaway is my New York cruise ship ‘canvas.’”

“Norwegian Breakaway is New York’s ship and this colorful artwork by Peter Max will make the ship an instant icon,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer.  “The Big Apple is known for its love of art and its many galleries – and now, Norwegian Breakaway becomes a floating piece of art that will cruise in and dock every Saturday on New York’s West Side. With this distinctive design, unlike anything else on the water, the ship will be recognizable to the millions of New Yorkers who will see her as she journeys up and down the Hudson River each week.”
