Sanja Lazic was born in 1990 in Belgrade, Serbia. Her interest in art comes from a very early age and although she didn’t have the talent to pursue it professionally, she enjoys every day working and writing about it. Her favorite urban artists are Interesni Kazki, Saner and Phlegm.

Raymond Pettibon grew up in Hermosa Beach, California and began his career as a musician and designer. Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s he was a part of the Californian punk rock scene, working with several rising bands like Black Flag for whom he designed now the iconic “four bars” logo, and several album covers.  Pettibon also collaborated with Sonic Youth and even designed the cover for their 1991 album “Goo”. Until the beginning of the 90s, he already became a household name in the contemporary art scene and started exhibiting in major galleries and museums and earned several awards for his work. Pettibon has exhibited all over the US and around the works and his works are part of the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Tate Gallery in London, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art among others.

American Culture as a Main Influence

Pettibon’s subject matter is sometimes violent and anti-authoritarian. As his main influences he takes elements from American culture, especially deviances of marginal youth – culture to art, literature, sports, religion, sexuality and even politics. Using pencil, watercolor, collage, gouache or acrylic paint, he combines it with motives that include Charles Manson, surfers, baseball players, vixens, homicidal teenage punks and the cartoon figure Gumby and adds either borrowed passages from literature or text written by the artist himself.

Introducing A New Collection

Wanting to expand field of his work to something new, Pettibon decided to do a collaboration with Supreme New York and release a small “street” collection of items including two Skateboard decks, a Hooded work jacket, a Pullover Sweatshirt, and two T-Shirts featuring his artwork.
