Maxwell Coppola’s new paintings mix youthful innocence with disturbing imagery to create ironic works of art. Max’s naive style, combined with his nostalgic subject matter and sense of humor form something truly unique. His scenes depict common settings and relatable events, although everything has a twist. Working in oil, Coppola uses each painting to establish just a snapshot of a particular story, whereas the full story is unique to the viewer. Recently, Max began to create artwork out of school supplies, candy, blocks and toys among other nostalgic items.
Maxwell Coppola received a minor in Art and Design from Northeastern University in Boston, MA in 2011. In July 2010, Maxwell studied abroad at the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan, Ireland with Northeastern University under the direction of artists Mira Cantor and Sophia Ainslee.
Maxwell was born in Newport, RI and raised in Middletown, RI. He now lives in Los Angeles, CA.
