Max was born in Berlin, Germany, but grew up in Shanghai, Haifa, and Paris. His love of art burgeoned while in Paris, where he took classes at the Louvre. In 1953, he and his family relocated to Brooklyn, NY, wher ehe received formal training at the Art Students League of New York under the tutelage of Frank J. Reilly. He then enrolled in the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY.
After graduating, Max founded a small art studio with artists Tom Daly and Don Rubbo, and his popularity blossomed when he created the advertising campaign for 7-Up in 1968. Two years later, The M.H. de Young Memorial Museum held an exhibit featuring solely Max's work, entitled "The World of Peter Max."

His oeuvre included an installation of 100 Clintons, as well as 44 Obamas, which debuted on The Early Show.
