Max Coyer (1954 - 1988) was best known for his paintings, which he referred to as "synthetic art," his theory and name for the current art movement of the time, in which he proclaimed the split between academic and modernist art to be at an end; that new art was "synthetic" - influenced heavily by both movements and with neither of their methods (figurative and abstract, respectively), but an amalgamation of both.

for their words about Max.
