Max Kornfield (b. 1997, California, USA) is a queer artist and curator. They recently graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, NYC. Their current work uses oil paint to explore interconnection through bodily imagery and spiritual symbology. Carnal and cosmic love, intimacy, the duality of balance/imbalance, transformation, and transcendence are central themes.

As a curator, Max prioritizes early-career artists from marginalized backgrounds and aims to place power back in the hands of artists to exhibit, connect, and sustain themselves as a supportive community.
