These works were published mostly by SST Records - a label founded by Pettibon's brother and Black Flag guitarist, Greg Ginn; these works shed valuable light on the origin and development of Pettibon’s thematic interests & style; not to mention his evolution into one of the most important artists of his generation. About Raymond Pettibon (American b. 1957) Having emerged from the Southern California DIY culture and its punk-rock sensibility, Raymond Pettibon fuses together youthful edginess and political engagement. Drawing from disparate cultural sources—from Marcel Proust to the Bible—the artist’s cartoon-inspired ink drawings on unframed paper recall the look of fanzines and concert flyers, however with an often cryptic semblance of narrative. More recently, Pettibon’s works have been a sustained critique of the Iraq War and American foreign policy, such as No Title ("Why press him?") (2007), which depicts George W. Bush with bloodied hands and surrounded by pointed, ironic commentary. Pettibon was a recipient of the Whitney's Bucksbaum award in 2004. In November of 2017, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg hosted Homo Americanus, a major survey of Pettibon’s work, encompassing over six hundred works from every part of the artist’s career, a majority of which have never been shown before. This major exhibition was also accompanied by a publication of the same name, documenting these same early works. In February 2017, the New Museum presented 'A Pen of All Work,' a major solo exhibition of Pettibon’s work featuring 700 plus drawings from the 1960s to the present - the artist’s first museum survey in New York and most comprehensive presentation of his work to date.
