① Artwork:

Untitled (Toucan)

This colorful Toucan, part of a group of 19 individual prints that were made at the same time, fully displays the artist's signature combination of iconic brushwork and witty text. Pettibon's work intermixes image and text to engage the visual rhetorics of pop and commercial culture—while incorporating language from mass media and texts by classic writers such as Walt Whitman and William Blake.

Pettibon has made numerous prints with Brooke Alexander, both in collaboration with Marcel Dzama and by himself. Many of the solo lithographs he made with Brooke Alexander were originally conceived of and released as part of the Plots On Loan project, which included an artist’s book and two sets of prints.

③ Artist:

Raymond Pettibon

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. The artist's drawings take as their points of departure both 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. Pettibon's work have come to occupy their own genre of potent and dynamic artistic commentary, ranging from punchy and political to high literary and extremely poetic.
