The Collected Links of Raymond Pettibon
I’m starting a new series tonight, one of two new ongoing artist features that I aim to keep posting to in the weeks, months, decades that follow. Raymond Pettibon, in my opinion is punk rock’s answer to Andy Warhol, cynically stoking his work with such truly american made pop culture references as handguns and baseball, celebrity murder and mickey mouse. It is brilliant and dark and always provoking. But what makes me a fan most of all is his use of text and the hand drawn representation of design layout in his work. He is a designer’s artist to be sure.

We’ll get started this evening with this small gallery as well as a series of interviews from Art:21. Enjoy, and if you know of other great Pettibon links, be sure to send them my way.

The *ahem* Bradgelina paparazzi angle of this story still has me leery to post this but the whole “life imitating art imitating life” on multiple levels was just too much not to. Plus, the Sonic Youth “Goo” album cover is sweet. The play by play from WFMU:

A paparazzi photo of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the back seat of a car from 2005, artwork for Sonic Youth’s album “Goo” from 1990, which is based on a paparazzi photo of David and Maureen Smith (two people named Mr. and Mrs. Smith) driving to the in 1966. Plate of shrimp, anyone?

Be sure to note the boyfriend stealing reference on the SY album. Too perfect.
