Art for the Oceans 3, Raymond Pettibon and Honolua Bay [25th Anniversary Gala, Oct9th]

What happens to us during our teen years often stays with us for the rest of our lives. The music, the styles, etc. When I think of Raymond Pettibon I'm jarred back to my high school years; arriving at a Black Flag show, checking my skateboard with the bouncer, and heading in.

But the thing is, Raymond Pettibon brings me to other places... I'll never forget rounding a corner in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and having the image of a wave, created by him in pen and ink, literally stop me in my tracks. It had the stopping power of Guernica for me.

Art for the Oceans 3, is the art auction taking place within our 25th Anniversary Gala on October 9th in Los Angeles. Currently we have 23 of the works in hand. I'll be sharing more imagery over the next few weeks.

One work we have yet to see is the one by Raymond Pettibon.

Here's the back story. This is why Shaun Tomson selected Honolua Bay and why Scott Hulet matched that wave with this artist.

Save the date: October 9th. 25 of the most iconic waves in the world done by 25 notable artists. It's quite the collection.
