Award winning American artist Raymond Pettibon Stands with Cultural Boycott of apartheid Israel

 Award winning American artist Raymond Pettibon, whose work is included in the collection of numerous museums and institutions worldwide has shown support for Palestinians through his apparent support for the cultural boycott of apartheid Israel.  He tweets on April 5:

During the early days of punk music, the late 1970s and early 1980s, Pettibon produced artwork on fliers, promotional posters, stickers, and album covers. His most notable work from this period was for his brother's band, Black Flag. He also worked with other bands, including the Dead Kennedys, the Ramones, Meat Puppets, and the Minutemen. Pettibon’s work from this period was mainly done with India ink on paper in black-and-white, although he would add color using acrylic or watercolor paints or colored pencils. He began exhibiting his work in the 1980s. In 1991, the artist won the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in Painting, Sculpture, Print-making, Photography, and Craft Media. He released an anthology of his work, 
Raymond Pettibon: A Reader, in 1998. Pettibon won the Wolfgang Hahn Prize from the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, Germany, in 2001. In 2004, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York gave him the Bucksbaum Award. In 2010, Pettibon won the Oskar Kokoschka Prize in Vienna, Austria.   more at
