Max Gottfried is a mild mannered professor and educator at Rambam Mesivta, Nassau Community College and Shelhevet High School for Girls. He continues to educate and inspire the students at Rambam for almost 20 years. His paintings, prints and 3D constructions are the inspired result from a collective steady diet of comic books, film noir, 1960s garage music and vintage textiles. He continues to exhibit and sell his paintings in galleries worldwide. Recent exhibits include: Coffee Nut Gallery (Long Beach, NY) Firehouse Gallery (Garden City, NY), Mill Pond Gallery (St James, NY), Babylon Village Art Show and the Freeport Memorial Library.
