Max Guy is a multidisciplinary artist who works with paper, video, performance, assemblage and installation. He uses appropriated material and deskilled working methods as a fast, ergonomic way of reflecting the world and filtering it through personal effects. In the process, his work constitutes a personal mythology or parallel universe of sorts. Guy received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and a master’s degree in fine arts from the Department of Art, Theory and Practice at Northwestern University.
