LA///SNEEK PEEK: RAYMOND PETTIBON’S 1980s RETROSPECTIVE AT REGEN PROJECTS
Putting a nice cap to a typically balmy LA summer is the phenomenal retrospective of landmark 1980s drawings by seminal punk artist RAYMOND PETTIBON at West Hollywood’s REGEN PROJECTS opening this weekend. Culled from both the artist’s personal archives and the gallery’s collection of vintage work, the art presented here covers the years 1979—1989, Pettibon’s most fertile and landmark period. It was during this time of economic and social upheaval in the Southland that Pettibon’s iconic style was set in stone and he began illustrating Black Flag’s album covers and show flyers, putting an indelible visual stamp on the erupting hardcore punk movement that would define the sound of the era.
