Max Makewell is a Miami based painter whose work explores how viewers interact with conceptual depths of color and light. Born in New York City, Makewell comes from a family deeply rooted in classical art, which fostered his early development in becoming an artist himself.
He began painting still lives with his mother and sculpting with his grandfather. Soon after, Makewell cultivated his skills in figure drawing and portraiture with contemporary masters in Italy and the United States. Makewell moved to Miami in Feb 2017 to allow himself the time and space to be inspired by its International, vibrant and exciting community.
This led to Makewell’s recent shift into abstraction, which reflects his ongoing creative pursuit of art’s universal language. His work resides in collectors’ homes across the globe and has been shown in American and European cities.
