Maxmillian Peralta is a painter from Cleveland, Ohio. His interest in fashion and dress was developed when he inherited all of his late grandfather’s tailor-made suits as a young man.
Maxmillian’s work draws inspiration from the exclusionary history of portraiture to examine the relationship between class and clothing. He is currently earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art and is anticipating graduation in 2021. His work has been exhibited at Pratt Institute in New York (NY), The Rhodes Tower in Columbus (OH), and a two-person show “Ligne de Vetements” in the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery in Cleveland (OH). His highest honors include an American Visions Medal in 2017 & a painting of his accompanying the national Art.Write.Now Tour from 2017-2019. Most recently, he was awarded the Ted Frost ‘88 Traveling Scholarship in 2020.
