Artist Peter Max created a Steamer Trunk to be given as a present to Celebrities at the 2002 MTV awards. Tycoon purchased the below featured Peter Max Trunk one of only 12 that had been given to "The Boss" Bruce Springsteen.

Peter Max’s story begins in Germany where he was born in 1937. He and his family fled the Nazis in 1938 and moved to Shanghai, China, where they lived for the next ten years. Max was incredibly artistic from the moment he was born, enamored by color and constantly searching for ways to draw on everything (to the detriment of his mother). For Peter, color was paired with sound – an intense synesthesia. The ripple of crayons on a steamer trunk was the first memorable experience for the artist where he truly realized his love for sound and color. Today, there are few works by Max created in silence.

Gift Packaging

Ultimate Basket

Presenters and performers at the MTV Video Music Awards got more than just exposure to millions of teenage TV watchers. Celebrities who graced the show's stage—including skin-flashers like Britney Spears, Eminem and Pink—also walked away with an enormous goodie bag with about $18,000 worth of loot.

On 3 Productions produced the gift bag, which consisted of a trunk decorated with an MTV logo designed by Peter Max, and a four-foot tall gift bag packaged by the Ultimate Basket that was filled with products from more than 140 vendors. The bag's highlights: Sony's Cybershot digital camera, an Epson printer, a Nintendo GameCube, Chanel rimless sunglasses and a complimentary stay at any W hotel in New York. Fitness-friendly items were also thrown in—like a one-year membership to Crunch gym, Skechers roller skates and a velour Fila warm-up suit—perhaps in order to help keep up those buff bodies the celebs like to flaunt.
