3 NEW RAYMOND PETTIBON
TWITTER COMPILATIONS


Raymond Pettibon's writings embraced the expanse of social-media digital technology while allowing a more intimate glimpse at the artist. Between February 2011 and February 2021, Pettibon posted something in the region of eighteen thousand digital comments on Twitter.

SCKONTHIS!!, Tuff Luyv, and my fists r free are 3 books based on the entire transcripts that appear here for the first time.

This eclectic collection demonstrates the range of Pettibon's thinking as he embarks on an artistic enlightenment project. Pettibon's digital writings reveal the artist in a creative-informal rather than critical-formal mode. They flesh out ideas elucidated in his artworks, none of which are represented here.

The twits cover topics as varied as golf, oral, life, and art history—subjects chosen at random for broad appeal andexamined with passion and insight.

Raymond Pettibon’s (b. 1957) influential oeuvre engages a wide spectrum of American iconography variously pulled from literature, art history, philosophy, religion, politics, sports, and alternative youth culture, among other sources. Intermixing image and text, his drawings engage the visual rhetorics of pop and commercial culture while incorporating language from mass media as well as classic texts by writers such as William Blake, Marcel Proust, John Ruskin, and Walt Whitman.

PCP Press has been a publisher of Avant-Garde art books and insurgent authors since '69.
