About the Author

Raymond Pettibon (b. 1957, Tucson) is known for his work that 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. Taking their points of departure in 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, his drawings have come to occupy their own genre of potent and dynamic artistic commentary, ranging from punchy and political to high literary and extremely poetic.

Reviews

Every so often, a fresh monograph comes out on a well-known, even rock star-status artist. And that artist's fans and collectors purchase the new book, de rigueur, in much the same way that an avid music fan might purchase a greatest-hits or a remixes album -- out of love and loyalty and connoisseurship and the obsessively acquisitive collector's impulse, but with no real expectation of learning anything new. Well, maybe one or two new or previously unreleased tracks to sweeten the pot. On that score, people who buy Homo Americanus (the new Raymond Pettibon monograph out from David Zwirner Books) are in for a particularly excellent treat -- but the real surprise is that even Pettibon's biggest fans are in for a new education, too.--Shana Nys Dambrot "Whitehot Magazine "
There are many books out there collecting Raymond Pettibon's work, so let's cut to the chase: Homo Americanus: Collected Works is the best on the market. It's a Platonic ideal of an art monograph, offering a career-spanning selection of his best drawings, each one beautifully reproduced at a large size, with minimum commentary.--Jeff Jackson "Fanzine "
