One, two, three, punk Pettibon.

Los Angeles based Raymond Pettibon, born in 1957 in Dakota, USA, known for his affiliation with the punk rock band Black Flag and the amazing creator of comic inspired illustrations.
Often interlarded with social issues such as gang formation and segregation, his work is a true visual as well as a mental treat.

The Roski University of the Arts in Los Angeles, CA, is holding an exhibition on an intriguing collaboration between Pettibon himself and Brian Kennon. Upon Kennon's production of an oeuvre based on 1960s and 1970s Playboy "editorial nudity" and the German electronic band Tangerine Dream, Pettibon took the opportunity to dig deeper into the artist's work and create a photographic exposé
on the two subjects brought together. Poorly dressed Barbie dolls, 70's porn and German New Age: definitely worth checking out.
