Art:21 - Raymond Pettibon

    art:21

    2003

    A cult figure associated with the Los Angeles punk rock scene, Raymond Pettibon has acquired a reputation as one of the foremost artists working with drawing, text, and artist's books. Pettibon is as likely to explore the subject of surfing as he is typography; themes from art history and nineteenth-century literature appear in the same breath with the American politics from the 1960s.

    Raymond Pettibon is featured in the Season 2 episode “Humor” of the Art21 series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
