Born 1957, USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles.
The American artist Raymond Pettibon is recognized for his distinctive drawings which combine playful figures and ambiguous texts.
The aesthetic presentation of his works resemble the punk-rock aesthetic of the late 1970s in Southern California, where concert posters, album covers and comics conveyed a "do-it-yourself"-aesthetics. The contents of the drawings embrace a wide range of American high and low culture, such as youth culture, sports, religion, art history, literature, sexuality and politics.
