  • Artist Biography

    Raymond Pettibon

    American • 1957

    Raymond Pettibon is an American artist, well-known for his works that combine text with drawings reminiscent of comic books. Pettibon first rose to prominence in the Southern California punk rock scene of the 1980s, designing album art for his brother Greg’s band, Black Flag. Though he holds a degree in economics from UCLA, Pettibon is completely self-taught as an artist. Pettibon’s work is often political in nature, critiquing American foreign policy and his experience of American life in general. 

    The artist was the subject of a major retrospective, entitled “Raymond Pettibon: A Pen of All Work” at the New Museum in 2017. His work has been collected by the Tate Modern, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Museum of Modern Art.
