”The Art Of Punk” traces the roots of the punk movement and the artists behind the iconic logos of punk bands. First three episodes will focus on legendary bands; Black Flag, The Dead Kennedys, and Crass.
Black Flag – The Art of Raymond Pettibon
”The Art of Punk” begins with a profile of the artist Raymond Pettibon, who founded Black Flag with his brother, guitarist Greg Ginn. In the short documentary-style film, filmmakers Bryan Ray Turcotte (Kill Your Idols) and Bo Bushnell (The Western Empire) chronicle the birth of Blag Flag’s logo — four black bars that came to symbolize hardcore music.
The 22-minute video includes interviews with notable punk figures like Henry Rollins and Flea, providing glimpses into the impressive archive of posters, album designs and t-shirts bearing the Pettibon logo. It is a celebration of all things atonal and anti-authoritarian, which makes sense, considering Pettibone’s reputation for making ”obsessive, black-humored art.
Dead Kennedy’s – The Art of Winston Smith
Directors Bryan Ray Turcotte, and Bo Bushnell hit head on with the art behind the legendary Dead Kennedy’s. From the chaotic, surreal, madness, of collage mixed with political folly that blazed their LP’s and gig flyers; to the razor edge ultra simplistic four simple line DK symbol.
In San Francisco we corner founding Dead Kennedy’s member Jello Biafra, and discuss his own warped inspiration for the many sleeves and posters created in the early days of the band. Back in Los Angeles we talk with pop surrealist artist Tim Biskup about how the DK’s affected and twisted his own young mind, and Steve Olson graces us with a few words of wisdom. Finally we meet up with master collage artist, and designer of the DK’s symbol, Winston Smith in his North Beach art studio, and talk about how he was drawn into the early Bay Area punk scene – and his long and creative artist relationship with the Dead Kennedy’s and Jello Biafra.
Crass – The Art of David King
This episode tear into the art of Crass. From the assaulting black and white photo-realistic paintings of protest, anarchy, and social satire, to their legendary adopted brand and two headed snake and cross symbol. We head up to the Anarchist Book Fair in San Francisco to meet up with Gee Vaucher, and founding Crass member, writer, and activist, Penny Rimbaud. We discuss the art and the lifestyle stemming from the infamous Dial House, where they have lived, worked, and crated their own brand of anarchistic beauty, for more than 3 decades. We have a sit down with artist Scott Campbell, at his own New York tattoo shop, and talk about how the art of Crass, and one single t-shirt created a fork in his own road of life. Owen Thornton talks some shit. Finally we hang out with British graphic designer Dave King – the creator of the infamous snake and cross symbol, and discuss post war England, hippies, punk, graphic design, and more, that led him to the creation of the symbol made legend by Crass.
