Raymond Pettibon


b. 1957, Tucson AZ

Lives and works in New York City

Pettibon is known for his stylized ink drawings combining image and text. His inventive narratives blend “high” and “low” references to yield incisive critiques of contemporary culture, often featuring black humour and biting one-­liners. His practice draws from comics, cartoons, and other Pop iconography. As a musician also, he said, “music was one thing and art was another, and there weren’t really any standards for my art.”
