Max Neufeldt was born in the small town of Stafford, Kansas. When he was small boy, his parents left their Mennonite community to raise their children in Mt. Vernon, New York. Max traveled back to Kansas every summer to work on the family farm with his cousins, aunts and uncles. The rustic beauty of the rural Midwest continues to impact Max’s artistic style and personal sensibility.
Max earned his BFA from Ohio Wesleyan, and his MFA at the Pratt Institute in New York. Max uses reclaimed wood, welded metal rod, tin and found objects to create low-relief sculptures that reflect the intricate aesthetic of the Mechanical Age. His artwork has shown in numerous galleries throughout West, and is sought by collectors in the U.S. and abroad.
