Raymond Pettibon and Baseball

"Raymond Pettibon is one of the leading contemporary artists of this generation, and man whose work has been accepted and glorified by both high and low culture, high art and lowbrow enthusiasts, major galleries in NYC and Los Angeles as well as punk rock zines and indie rock album covers. He also has a love of baseball that has spanned decades, creating an impressive body of work depicting the intimate details of America’s pastime. His view of baseball comes from a passionate following, but also an alternative angle, one of dialog, art, unspoken communication. We look at some of the great Pettibon baseball pieces today as America turns its attention toward the Major League All-Star break."
