Max Savaiko was born and raised near Red Bank, New Jersey, a quiet town settled just between the Beaches of Sea Bright, and the Horse country of Colts Neck.
From a very young age Max attended various art classes to further his natural talent. During this time, he was mentored in drawing, the arts, and composition by his sister, Lauren Savaiko, also a professionally accomplished artist. Max continued his lifelong passion of Art and studied under Neil Carlin at the Brandywine Atelier and Studio Rilievo. This further strengthened his knowledge of this complex craft, and classical realism.
Max creates in oil paint in the tradition of the Old Dutch Masters using a variety of techniques that include strong use of light and shade, bold color, contrasts, and abstract shapes. His intent is to capture the viewer and elicit a visceral response, which brings them into the scene, and makes it feel as if they can touch the objects d’art.
Max can be found painting in Kennett Square Pennsylvania, where he lives with his beautiful wife and twin daughters..
