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 drawings intermix image and text to explore pop and commercial culture's visual articulation. The artist incorporates language from classic texts and mass media alongside a wide spectrum of American iconography, including: literature, art history, philosophy, religion, politics, sports and alternative youth culture. Pettibon’s drawing practice harkens back to the traditions of satire and social critique in the work of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century artists and caricaturists—while reinforcing the importance of the medium within contemporary art and culture today.
