Raymond Pettibon: A Pen of All Work

Staff Pick
Pettibon first rose to prominence designing the logos and album art for seminal ‘80s punk bands like Black Flag while self-distributing a groundbreaking series of graphic zines. The works in this monograph, spanning nearly 4 decades and a variety of mediums, speak to Pettibon’s genius in melding high and low culture into artworks that often include textual components, with quotes from philosophers, novelists, and politicians interspersed among his images. Pettibon’s treatment of subjects like baseball, surfing, George W. Bush, and the Vietnam War make him one of the finest contemporary visual artists illuminating the colorful, wacky, and destructive underpinnings of American culture.
