Raymond Pettibon Biography

Raymond Pettibon’s work embraces a wide spectrum of American 'high' and 'low' culture, from the deviations of marginal youth to art history, literature, sports, religion, politics, and sexuality. Taking their points of departure in the Southern California punk-rock culture of the late 1970s and 1980s and the 'do-it-yourself' aesthetic of album covers, comics, concert flyers, and fanzines that characterized the movement, his drawings have come to occupy their own genre of potent and dynamic artistic commentary.

Born in 1957 in Tucson, Arizona, Pettibon graduated with a degree in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1977.

Pettibon's work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad.
