Max Ginsburg has lived and worked in New York all his life. As a New Yorker, he feels a personal and deep connection to this rich, energetic, and beautiful city with its amazingly diverse population. His objective is to paint about the people of New York, realistically and with compassion. Max has expressed his strongly held feelings about peace and justice; deep outrage to war, injustice, and torture are conveyed in some of his paintings. With regard to these themes, he has been inspired by Old Masters such as Caravaggio, Goya, Kollwitz, and Picasso. He chose to paint realistically because he believes realism is truth and truth is beauty. He derives an aesthetic pleasure in skillfully done realistic drawings and paintings and believes that realism can communicate ideas strongly and it is this communication that is extremely important to him.
