Raymond Pettibon is known for his comic-like drawings with disturbing, ironic or ambiguous text, Pettibon's subject matter is sometimes violent and anti-authoritarian. From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, he was closely associated with the punk rock band Black Flag and the record label SST Records, both founded by his older brother Greg Ginn. Beginning in the mid 1980s, he also became a well- known figure in the contemporary art scene. Pettibon’s drawings encompass the spectrum of American culture from the deviances of marginal youth-culture to art, literature, sports, religion, politics and sexuality. They combine the drawn image and text, both borrowed passages from literature and passages written by Pettibon himself.
Pettibon is represented by David Zwirner Gallery in New York.
